An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today. Ratios for all six groups were found in compliance. The children were participating in outside play, singing, playing circle games, eating lunch and getting ready for nap. The two new classrooms look good, well equipped and set up. Medication procedures were reviewed, and staff with current first aid, CPR and MAT certification were on site. Staff records were also reviewed. If you have any questions, I can be reached at 703-479-4709.
