An unannounced non mandated monitoring inspection was conducted from 10:30 am to 11:45 am. The purpose of the inspection was to assess previous violations. There were 4 children (9 points) present with one caregiver. The children were observed playing with home living toys, puzzles, getting a diaper change and washing hands. Attendance records, emergency drill records and menu were reviewed and found to be current and posted. 4 children's records and two household member's records were reviewed.
