An unannounced renewal inspection was completed on 11/4/16. There were four children present for after school care with the provider supervising. The point total was four. One newly enrolled child's record was reviewed. The provider's record and household records had been reviewed at the initial inspection and were current. The inspector arrived at the provider's home at 3:45 pm. The provider had to leave to pick up the children from school and returned at 4:20 pm. The inspector departed the provider's home at 5:30 pm. The children were observed during arrival, during snack, during free play time, and during departure. There was discussion with the provider about the following: ensuring children are checked in and marked off the attendance within the required time frame (30 minutes). The provider gave the inspector the renewal application and FDH Addendum form during the inspection.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-920 Description: Based on observation and interview with the provider, the provider failed to ensure that the posted menu listed substitutions. Evidence: 1. The afternoon snack menu for the date of the inspection listed graham crackers and juice. The children were served "cuties" (oranges) and chocolate pudding. The provider did not change the menu during the inspection. Plan of Correction: The provider will ensure that the menu is changed when substitutions are made in the future.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-1010 Description: Based on observation and interview with the provider,the provider failed to ensure that the requirements for the vechicle during transportation of the children were followed. Evidence: 1. A child who is seven years old was being transported without a car or booster seat. The child will be eight years old tomorrow (11/5/16). The Standards and the Virginia state law requires that each child up to eight year of age is in an individual car seat or individual appropriate restraint in accordance with the law. Plan of Correction: The provider will ensure proper transportation is provided in the future.
