Standard #: 22VAC40-185-290-2
Description: Based on the inspector's observations during nap time, a floor fan was in use in a classroom with three and four year old children sleeping. Evidence: A tower style, oscillating, floor fan was observed in use during the time of inspection.

Plan of Correction: The fan will no longer be used when children are in care.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-450-D
Description: Based on the inspector's observations, the center failed to ensure pillows were assigned for individual use. Evidence: The inspector viewed three out of five pillows in the Pre-K classroom. Neither the pillows nor the cases were labaled in any manner to indicated individual assignment.

Plan of Correction: The Program Leader for the classroom labeled the pillows and cases during the time of the inspection. When children bring linens and pillows to the center the staff will label the items with names or initials if not already done so by the parent.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-520-D
Description: Based on the inspector's observations and staff interviews, the center failed to ensure insect repellent when applied to a child is recorded with the required information. Evidence: The inspector observed multiple bottles of insect repellent present in two classrooms. There was no evidence of the repellent being logged when applied to a child. Staff confirmed insect repellent has been in use at the center and they were not aware of any method to record the child's name, date of use, frequency of application, and any adverse reaction.

Plan of Correction: A log will be created with the required information and copies will be provided to staff. The PD will review with all staff the requirement for completing the log when insect repellent is applied to a child.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-C
Description: Based on the inspector's review of the schedule posted in the classroom with three and four year old children, the center failed to ensure there is at least a period of an hour and a half between meals and snacks. Evidence: The schedule in the classroom indicates "Arrival-Breakfast 9:15" and "9:40-10:00 Bathroom/Snack". This would only allow for twenty five minutes between breakfast and the start of morning snack time.

Plan of Correction: The PD will review all classroom schedules to ensure there is a at least and hour and a half between meals and snacks and no more than three hours unless inturupted by a rest period.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-60-B
Description: Based on the inspector's observations and review of two contracted staff member's records, the center failed to ensure the staff member's had completed sworn statements. Evidence: The inspector observed the music class taking place and there were nineteen children present in the class. The children were reported to range in age from two through four years of age. There were two center staff present with two staff contacted to give the music class. The ratio applies to the youngest child in care and is one staff member for every eight children. This would require at least one of the contracted staff to count in the staff to child ratio. Contracted staff member #1 and #2 did not have signed sworn statements for review at the center.

Plan of Correction: An up to date record will be maintained for contracted staff in the event they count in the staff to child ratio. The PD will contact the company to obtain up to date records.

Standard #: 22VAC40-80-120-E-2
Description: Based on the inspections observations, the center failed to ensure the results of the most recent inspection were posted in a conspicuous manner. Evidence: The inspector observed the Inspection Summary posted. During the previous inspection a Violation Notice was issued and is not posted in a manner conspicuous to the public.

Plan of Correction: Today's Violation Notice will be posted and take the place of the previously posted Inspection Summary.
