An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed on Monday, December 16, 2019 to determine the center?s compliance with licensing standards and as a part of the center?s six month probationary period. The inspection was also to follow up on an Intensive Plan of Correction (IPOC) to address previously cited violations related to the administration, staffing, and supervision. The inspector arrived at 9:40am and concluded the inspection at approximately 2:20pm. The center?s director and assistant director were present and assisted the inspector throughout the inspection.

Upon arrival, the children were engaged in a variety of activities. Each classroom was inspected and formal observations were completed.
