Comments:
An unannounced Renewal inspection was conducted this date. A total of 25 infants present with 8 staff in addition to the Director. A walk thru of the physical plant was conducted which included the crib area, diapering stations and programming areas. Toys and equipment on site are maintained in good repair and age appropriate for the children presently in care. Infants were observed being held by staff while being fed, sitting on laps and singing songs and reading books. Infants were freely playing on the floor with toys that promoted both gross and fine motor skills. Lunch today was meatballs, carrots, potatoes and fresh fruit.
