Technical Assistance:
We discussed the requirements for staff training records, children's records, and locking cleaning supplies and medication. The risk assessments for violations were provided. You were reminded that the daily health observation training hours do not count toward annual staff development requirements. You may count two hours of the first aid class.

Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced monitoring inspection conducted from 9:10 AM to 11:45 AM and from 1:25 PM to 2:40 PM. Today, there were thirteen four year old children in the morning class and six children in the afternoon class with two teachers. I viewed staffing, supervision, interactions with children, daily routines, equipment, activities, posted information, asbestos management, agency inspection reports, emergency supplies and drill records, four records for children, three staff records, staff training, and indoor areas. The playground was not inspected this date due to the rain and wet conditions. Today was "picture day" in the gym. The children have been provided learning opportunities each week with planned themes for activities. This week, they were provided a variety of apple related experiences, songs and discussions. The teachers were observed providing skilled ways to facilitate learning and the understanding of new concepts. Let me know if you have any questions. 540/430-9259

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Description: Based on a review of four records for children, and an interview with administrative staff, there was information missing from the record of child 2. Evidence: The administrator signature for the written agreements with parents was not included at the designated areas of the registration form. The first date of attendance was not written in the file or clearly documented in the attendance book.

Plan of Correction: The director/teacher will determine the start date for child 2 and add the information to the registration form. The director/teacher signed the written agreement. All of the new children's records will be reviewed by the designated teachers to make sure they contain all required information. In the future, the teachers will review all of the children's records at the start of enrollment to make sure they include all required information and signatures.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A
Description: Based on a review of three records for staff, and an interview with staff, the required documentation for a course taken in 2014 by staff member 1, and counted toward the annual staff development hours, was not in the record. Evidence: The college transcript was not in the file. Staff member 1 indicated that she remembered asking for the transcript. Only the title and applied hours were listed in a training log in the file. The only transcript with the staff records was for a different staff member who completed the same course.

Plan of Correction: Staff member 1 will request and obtain a copy of the college transcript for the course work completed in 2014. In the future, the teachers will make sure the documentation such as transcripts and certificates are included with the training records at the time the training was completed.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on observation of the storage areas in use, and interviews with staff, the locking mechanism for the cabinet containing emergency medication and cleaning supplies was not working. Evidence: During the morning, the two cabinet doors above the sink were repeatedly opened and the locking mechanism never hooked to prevent the opening of the doors. Staff indicated that the child-proof locks and cabinets were new and installed earlier this calendar year. The left cabinet contained emergency medication for three children. The right cabinet contained an open plastic box with Clorox Anywhere Spray, Clorox disinfecting wipes, Glade air spray, Goo Gone spray, and Mr. Clean spray.

Plan of Correction: A teacher adjusted the hooking mechanisms and latched both cabinets. The teachers of all programs will check the cabinets each day and make sure the locking mechanisms are working whenever the cabinet doors are closed. Volunteers with the programs will be told of the need to use the locking mechanisms.

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.
