Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today from 1:40pm-4:00pm. There were 21 children present with 2 staff. The physical plant, programming, 3 staff records, 4 children?s records, evacuation drills, injury reports, emergency supplies, and policies were inspected. Staff advised no medication is on site today. Children were learning to draw and participating in a painting craft project. Positive interactions between children and staff were observed during this inspection. There was an abundant supply of age appropriate materials for the children. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the Violation Notice. If you have any questions regarding this inspection, please contact me at morgan.bryson1@dss.virginia.gov.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-160-A
Description: Based on review of 3 staff records, 2 staff records did not contain documentation of a negative tuberculosis screening submitted no later than 21 days after employment. Evidence: 1. Staff #1's (Date of Hire: 8/20/18) record did not contain a tuberculosis test or screening. 2. Staff #3's (Date of Hire: 9/28/17) record did not contain a tuberculosis test or screening.

Plan of Correction: Before school starts the staff will get TB tests.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on observation of the physical plant, hazardous substances, such as cleaning materials, were not kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: 1. In the Upper Elementary classroom, several bottles of cleaning supplies were hanging on the classroom sink outside of the bathrooms. In addition, there were several more bottles of cleaning supplies located in the restroom on shelving. The door to the bathroom was unlocked and accessible by the children in care.

Plan of Correction: I will speak with the head of the school to determine if we will either lock the bathroom or put the cleaning supplies in a locked box. In the meantime, I will move the cleaning supplies to another classroom where children aren't present until a permanent decision is made.
