Technical Assistance:
Consultation and technical assistance today included supervision in both rooms when using a baby monitor until a caregiver is available to be downstairs with the sleeping infants. To access the new on-line trainings, go to www.dss.virginia.gov and look under children and provider resources & training. Information about MAT classes and EMAT classes should have a link there.

Comments:
An unannounced renewal inspection was conduct today from 11 am - 1:30pm. There were 11 children plus the child of an assistant present for 36 points with the provider and three assistants. I observed children playing outdoors; talking about plans for Halloween; singing; preparing for lunch and naptime. The new downstairs area for indoor play is very spacious and appears very child friendly with a variety of learning opportunities. If you have any questions, please contact me at brenda.kuhlman@dss.virginia.gov

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-830-B
Description: A review of records today found that there were no practice shelter-in-place drills done this year. Evidence: There was documentation of evacuations but no documentations of shelter-in-place drills.

Plan of Correction: We will have a shelter-in-place tomorrow and another in the spring.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-210-A
Description: A review of staff training records today found that not all staff received the required amount of annual training (in addition to CPR/First Aid) this year. Evidence: Although the provider received 16 hours of training, the two assistant providers did not have documentation of over 5 hours of training.

Plan of Correction: We will take more on-line training this year.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A
Description: During today's inspection, some electrical cords of the outdoor play area were observed to be accessible. Evidence: In two areas there were orange extension cords observed that were hanging, potentially accessible by standing on the bench below. The prongs of an unused electrical cord were observed to be accessible at foot level height today.

Plan of Correction: Corrected during inspection.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-500-C
Description: During today's inspection, it was noted that the outdoor playground equipment was placed on a hard surface with an insufficient amount of cushioning. Evidence: The climbing structure was placed on the wooden surface of the deck, with mats that were placed below the slide and stairs, but not protecting from falls from other areas of the structure.

Plan of Correction: We have more mats in the garage. I will put it out this afternoon.
