An unannounced renewal inspection of the family day home and records was conducted from 10:18am through 12:45pm. There were ten children present with the provider and one assistant caregiver. Total points for children present equal 24. Children household and assistant caregiver records were reviewed. Interviews were conducted with children and the provider. Children were observed in provider and self-directed activities including nap, lunch, transitions, and restroom routines. The inspector reviewed documentation for emergency evacuation drills, menus and required postings. The provider reports that there is not any medication administered to children in care. Children in care are rarely transported by the provider. When transportation is provided written parent authorization is obtained. The violations were observed in the following areas and appear on the violation notice: physical environment, materials and sanitation.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A Description: Based on observation and interview the provider failed to ensure furnishings are maintained in safe condition. Evidence: 1 - There are two shelving units in the upstairs child care room that are not secured to the wall. Therefore, they pose a toppling hazard. a. One shelf is 3 feet tall and two feet wide. b. One shelf is 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide. 2 - Children were observed accessing the toys and equipment on the shelves. 3 - The provider confirmed that the shelves are not secured to the wall. Plan of Correction: The provider will secure the shelving units to the wall.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-250-B Description: Based on observation and interview the provider failed to ensure that children are protected from materials that could be swallowed or present a choking hazard.

The beads were 7/8ths of an inch in diameter. 2 - There were six children in care under three years of age, one, five month old, two, 16 month old, one, 18 month old and two, two year old children in care today. 3 - The children were observed playing with the beads. 4 - The provider stated that she was unaware that the beads posed a choking hazard.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-690-D Description: Based on interview the provider failed to ensure that the diaper surface is sanitized after each use. Evidence: Caregiver 1 stated that he used two wipes to clean the diaper surface after changing a diaper.
