Discussed policies and procedures for children who do not sleep during naptime.
An unannounced monitoring inspection was initiated today at 12:15pm as a result from a self-reported incident which occurred on October 30th, 2014. The incident reported involved a child obtaining access to a hazardous material while in care. See Violation Notice for more information. Today, there were 93 children under the supervision of 14 teachers. During the inspection, children were observed listening to music, reading books, eating lunch, taking naps and playing quietly. For lunch, the children were served chicken, squash, apples, bread with butter and milk. There are currently 6 staff certified to administer medications (MAT). On Feb 7th, the center will be retraining staff in First Aid, CPR and MAT. The outside play area was not inspected today, due to the weather conditions. Should you have any questions, please contact me.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A Description: Based on interviews and record review, the center did not ensure the care and protection of children at all times while in care. Evidence 1. On October 30th at approximately 5:25pm, teacher #1 went to change a scented oil decanter that she had placed in the classroom. She unplugged the decanter and before she could throw it away, she set it down while talking to a parent who had entered the classroom. The teacher then turned around to see child #1 with the object placed in her mouth. Plan of Correction: The teacher immediately took this out of the child's mouth and had the child rinse her mouth out seven times and then drank some water. The child was observed for any unusual symptoms (which were not seen). The parent was notified of the incident both verbally and from an accident report that evening. Since this incident, the center has created a "Daily Health and Safety checklist" which includes keeping hazardous substances in a locked place. This is completed every morning and evening by a teacher in every classroom.
