Comments:
An initial inspection was conducted on-site with paperwork reviewed virtually at a central location for FCMS programs. Twenty five children were present with 3 staff. Observed children engaged in Montessori choices (math links, maps/puzzles, snack, writing, cleaning and art). Center was well equipped with materials and equipment that support a Montessori curriculum. Reviewed 5 children records, 4 emergency medications, emergency preparation and psychical space while on-site. Policies and procedures, proof of identity, physicals, liability insurance and updates were seen virtually. Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the program. Feel free to contact me if you need any assistance.
