The inspector discussed with the provider standard 22 VAC 40-80-230, in the General Procedures and Information for Licensure, regarding Allowable Variances.

An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on March 30, 2015 from 2:45 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. During the inspection, there were 8 children ages 13 months to 8 years in care with 2 caregivers. Children were observed during rest, afternoon snack, assembling puzzles, play with blocks, homework and departure with parents. Records were reviewed for 3 children, 2 caregivers and 2 pets. There was no medication administered to children.

Evidence: 1. While checking the refrigerator and freezer temperatures in the kitchen, the inspector observed a bottle of prescription medication and a blister pack of pills on a table in an unlocked place. 2. The inspector explained that although there is a safety gate blocking entrance to the kitchen and that it is an area that children do not use, the licensing standards require medication to be kept in a locked place. 3. Caregiver #1 assumed responsibility and immediately removed the medicine.

Plan of Correction: Caregiver #1 immediately removed the medication.

Evidence: 1. At the beginning of the inspection at 2:45 p.m. children were in care with a substitute provider until the licensee arrived at about 3:00 p.m. The substitute provider's first aid and CPR certification expired in Februrary 2015.

Caregiver #2 confirmed that it was a cool to touch space heater and it is very safe for the children moving around and the distance from other objects is appropriate based on the manufacturer's suggestion.

Plan of Correction: I would like to have an allowable variance for this EdenPURE cool to the touch space heater. If I am not able to get the variance I can remove it out of the school. I would like to have an allowable variance for this EdenPURE cool to the touch space heater.
