The inspector arrived at 10:00 AM and concluded the inspection at 4:45 PM. The census for today's inspection consisted of 183 children. During the inspection, children were exploring sensory blocks, dancing, completing art projects, washing hands, eating snack, taking bathroom breaks, planting daffodil bulbs, eating lunch, playing on the playground and napping. The classrooms are decorated with children?s art work and equipped with age and stage appropriate materials.

Ten children's records and ten staff records, annual fire and health inspections, fire drill and shelter in place drill logs, daily attendance, annual staff training hours and all required postings were reviewed.
