Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A
Description: Based on staff interviews, a parent interview, review of staff member's written accounts, review of supporting documentation, and verification from staff members, it was determined the center failed to ensure the care and protection of one child when he was left unattended on the playground for approximately five minutes. Evidence: 1. On 08/12/2015 at approximately 3:25 p.m., 19 children from Classroom #1 lined up outside on the back playground to go inside the building. Staff #1 counted all 19 children in-line while Staff #2 gathered kitchen items and left-over snack to take inside. 2. Staff #1 started to count the children as they were entering the building but stopped in order to tell Staff #2 to take one child with her when she went to the kitchen to drop off the items so they would remain in proper staff to children ratio. The other children and Staff #1 proceeded up the stairs to their classroom. Staff #1 quickly scanned the playground before closing the door. 3. Staff #2 returned to the classroom and both staff members began to help the children with an art activity. 4. At approximately 3:30 p.m., Staff #3 was in a downstairs classroom when the front doorbell of the center rang. She answered it through the intercom and a man's voice said, "You left a child outside and he's crying his eyes out." Staff # 3 ran to the back door of the center and found Child #1 (DOB: 04/03/2010) outside the door by the fence crying. He had been outside in the fenced playground area unattended for approximately five minutes. Child #1 told Staff #1 and his parent that he left the line and hid under the playground equipment because he did not want to go inside. 5. Staff #1 and Staff #2 did not realize that Child #1 was not with the group of children until Staff #3 informed them that she had found the child outside.

Plan of Correction: Staff #1 and #2 were demoted from Lead teachers to Assistant teachers and placed on a 90 business day probation. During the probationary period they are going to have to review the licensing procedures, review and retake our center's orientation. They will also have to retake the mandated reporting training, and all new 24 hour training to become a lead teacher again. The administrative staff reviewed the center policies & licensing standards individually with the staff regarding sight and sound supervision and conducting head counts during outside activities in addition to the transition times to and from the classrooms.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-F
Description: Based on staff interviews, a parent interview, review of staff member's written accounts, review of supporting documentation, and verification from staff members, the center failed to ensure that a child under 10 years of age was within actual sight and sound supervision when he was left unattended on the playground for approximately five minutes.

Evidence:
1. On 08/12/2015 at approximately 3:25 p.m. the children in Classroom #1 left the back playground to go inside the center with Staff #1 and Staff #2. Staff # 3 found Child #1 (DOB: 04/03/2010) outside on the playground unattended at approximately 3:30 p.m.
2. Both Staff #1 and Staff #2 were unaware that Child #1 had hidden under the play structure and did not come inside with the rest of the class and they verified that Child #1 was not within sight and sound supervision for approximately five minutes.
3. The playground is located behind the building and once the staff members were inside the center, they were unable to provide Child #1 with sight and sound supervision.

Plan of Correction: Staff #1 and #2 were demoted from Lead teachers to Assistant teachers and placed on a 90 business day probation. During the probationary period they are going to have to review the licensing procedures, review and retake our center's orientation. They will also have to retake the mandated reporting training, and all new 24 hour training to become a lead teacher again. The administrative staff reviewed the center policies & licensing standards individually with the staff regarding sight and sound supervision and conducting head counts during outside activities in addition to the transition times to and from the classrooms.
