Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-E-1 Complaint related: No Description: Based on observation, the center did not ensure the required staff to Infant child ratio was being followed. Evidence: During the 02/12/15 inspection, the licensing inspector arrived at the center at approximately 7:45am. Once entering the Infant room, the licensing inspector observed 10 Infants present with two staff members from 7:45am until the 8:15am. A third staff member arrived at approximately 8:15am and transitioned three children into the Toddler room. Centers are required to maintain a one staff member for every four Infants present at all times. Based on observations an additional staff member was required.

I have made an offer to a lead teacher on 03/03/15 and currently interviewing more applicants to hire additional teachers.
