- Technical Assistance:
Today we discussed the accessibility of the stationary outdoor play structure which is currently not being used by children in care. Because the structure has been deemed unsafe for use by the licensee, it is normally taped off with caution tape. However, the caution tape is no longer around the structure. Staff were aware that children may not use the equipment and were observed directing children away from the area. However, best practice would be to repair or remove the equipment so that t is not accessible to the children.
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 9:45 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. At the time of entrance the following adult to child ratios were observed: 16 children, ages 3 to 5 years old, with 2 staff 17 children, ages 3 to 5 years old, with 2 staff 19 children, ages 3 to 5 years old, with 2 staff 14 children, ages 3 to 5 years old, with 2 staff The records sample size consisted of 4 children?s records. Staff records are housed off site and were recently reviewed on 6/22/15 in a separate inspection. Children were observed in free choice learning centers, cutting and gluing paper, playing outdoors with balls and hula hoops, participating in circle time to include singing songs, discussing letters and phonetic sounds and being read to from children's literature. Medication administration was not observed. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice. Thank you for your time during today's inspection. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of assistance.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.Virginia Quality is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for early care and education facilities serving children ages birth through pre-K. Eligible child care facilities must be fully licensed, licensed exempt and a VDSS subsidy vendor, or a voluntary registered day home and a VDSS subsidy vendor. Only programs enrolled in Virginia Quality will display a rating. Virginia Quality contact information for your region is available at the following link Regional Contacts.
