An unannounced Monitoring inspection was conducted this date. A total of 78 children with 14 staff were present today. Observation of all 9 classrooms was conducted along with both the toddler and preschool playground was made. The center has a chicken coop which was found well maintained and observable from the preschool playground. Several classes were on the playground and basketball court interacting with each other and staff. The children transitioned back to the classrooms, washed hands and sat down for lunch. In the infant classroom, some infants were observed sleeping in cribs, laying on the floor under a mobile while staff interacted with them. The older infants were seated at a table with one staff sitting with them to ensure safe eating. All medication onsite, some topical ointments throughout classrooms and infant daily progress reports were reviewed. A total of 5 children's records and 5 staff records were reviewed. This inspection occurred between 11am and 2:15pm. Thank you for your cooperation today. Please email me at: with any questions.
