Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed today. The physical plant, 4 staff files, 5 children's files,staff training, children's activities, emergency procedures, drills and supplies were inspected between 12:00pm-1:30pm. There were 19 children under the supervision of 4 staff. During the inspection, children were observed playing outside on the playground, eating lunch, reading books, learning about geography and working with crafts. Each day the children are in care, they bring their lunches from home. There is now 1 staff certified to administer medications.The interactions between the children and staff were seen to be positive and constructive in nature.
