Thank you for your assistance during the initial inspection conducted by appointment from 9:25 AM to 2:00 PM. I viewed equipment, activity areas in two rooms, emergency supplies, posted information, agency inspection report, building official approval, staff records, staff qualifications, staff training, background checks for business representatives, written procedures and policies, hot water temperature, indoor and outdoor areas. The rooms were measured again to confirm the allowance for thirty-one children pending building official approval. The outdoor fenced playground was measured and it was determined this space can be used for nineteen children at any one time. The far grass and gravel area was determined to have space which will be more than adequate for the center's licensed capacity. The parts for a small composite structure were to be removed from the fenced playground since there were not any plans for installing resilient surfacing at fall zones of equipment. Approval of the initial license is pending receipt of information for the qualifications for a designated acting program director and pertinent records and a copy of the fire marshal's report. Also, please submit changed and added written policies and procedures as well as information resulting from your inquiry with the building official about the designated limit for the occupancy load.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-190-A Description: Based on a review of the records for two staff, and interviews with administrative staff, the center failed to ensure that a program director met the qualification requirements for education as well as experience. Evidence: Although staff member 1 had more than twenty years of programmatic experience, including a supervisory role with staff, according to the college transcripts, the number of college credits earned was twenty-five credits toward an Early Childhood Certificate. When asked for a copy of the college certificate anticipated for achievement in May, it was disclosed that additional coursework was needed and a class was started the week of May 20, 2019 in order to complete the college requirements. There was only an Early Childhood Professional Certificate of Completion of Apprenticeship available which verified 4000 hours of experience in January 2019. The education requirements were not met according to the options in the minimum standards. Plan of Correction: Staff member 1 immediately started reaching out to known teachers to find an acting program director for the initial summer hours. The background information for education and experience of a designated program director will be verified and the information such as transcripts, diploma and programmatic experience will be submitted to licensing staff. A qualified program director will be present at least fifty percent of the hours of operation.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information.
