An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today September 22, 2015 to determine the center's compliance with licensing standards. Most but not all standards were reviewed during today's Inspection. The inspector arrived at 10:00 am and concluded the inspection at 12:45 pm. Upon the inspector arrival, the preschool children were gathered together and reviewing counting, comparing amounts and basic math skills using counting bears. This week the theme is the letter "B". Children brought their favorite bear to school today for "Bear Share Day". In the lower level the younger preschool children were dancing and acting out movements according to a cd. Children galloped like a horse, bounced like a spring, ran in place and tip toed around the room. Children transitioned to singing songs that reinforced numbers and colors. Later the younger preschool children had bathroom breaks, washed their hands and headed outside on the playground to play at different bubble stations where they blew bubbles with different toys and items. The preschool children later had center play. Children were building New York City out of the wooden blocks, playing with the pirate ship, action figures, doll house and little ponies. A second area was open to the children to play with plastic food, pots & pans and the kitchen set. Children worked to maneuver sets on tongs to pick of pieces of the plastic food. Children also worked on completing an art project with staff. The art project was creating a panda bear from tearing black paper to make the bear and gluing strips of green paper together to create the bamboo for the panda. Staff talked about the Pandas. Lunch time was observed with children completing hand washing before going outside to the picnic tables where they ate today due to nice weather. Children provide their own meals which were labeled with names and dates as required. Children were preparing for nap as the inspector was leaving. Children read stories to their bears before going to sleep. The classrooms have multiple pieces of children art work on display. There is a variety of age and stage appropriate materials. The young preschool playground was inspected. The center had the following posted: license, daily schedule, emergency numbers, evacuation maps, and various parent information.
