Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today from 10:40am-1:30pm. There were 44 children (infants-5yrs.) supervised by 9 direct care staff. The physical plant, 3 staff records, 5 children?s records, medications, evacuation drills, injury reports, emergency supplies, and policies were inspected. Children were observed playing a memory matching game in Spanish class, counting and writing numbers in their workbooks, playing with blocks, and playdough, exploring in the sensory table, and eating lunch. Diapering and hand-washing procedures were also observed. Lunch served was penne with meat sauce, salad, applesauce, and milk. There was a sufficient amount of books, toys, and materials, which were found to be developmentally appropriate for the children in care at the time of inspection. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the Violation Notice.
