The inspector observed lunch where staff sat at each table and assisted children with request to help open items. Staff also conversed with children and encouraged them to try items on their plate. After lunch children had time on the playground where they played on climbing equipment, basketball, with frisbees, sidewalk chalk and waffle ball.
