An unannounced renewal inspection from the provisional license was completed on 11/23/15. There were 21 children present in three groupings with four staff directly supervising at all times and three other staff (cook, assistant director, director/owner) assisting with supervision as needed. Five children's records and three staff records were reviewed completely. Five staff records were reviewed partially to verify correction of previous violations. All driver's records were reviewed and all had current Medication Administration Training (MAT) in addition to several other staff at the center. No medications are currently being administered or stored at the center. All previous violations from the last inspection had been corrected. The inspector arrived at the center at 9:30 am and departed at 4:15 pm. The children were observed during free play time inside, during story times, during singing times, during a center-wide fire drill, during lunch, and during nap. There was discussion with the owner about the following: the posted daily schedule for the preschool group (did not include an afternoon schedule, did not include adequate amount of outside time, included majority structured - over one hour - time) - the program had a center schedule posted for other ages that included all required times/components and the parent handbook included a schedule with all required times/components, transition time after lunch with one particular child who was put in time-out and did not follow the routine of the other children. The owner/director stated (and had documentation) that the renewal application and check for the appropriate fee was mailed October 13, 2015 to the Piedmont Regional office address that is not occupied (Hershberger Road). The application, as of 11/20/15, had not been received. The mail that is sent to the Hershberger address has not been forwarded by the USPS to the correct address for a few months and is typically sent back to the licensee (has been taking three+ weeks for this process). The director/owner gave the inspector a copy of the application and another check for the fee in order to have the license processed before expiration.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-40-J Description: Based on review of the injury prevention plan and interview with the director/owner, the center failed to ensure that the injury prevention procedures were updated at least annually. Evidence: 1. The last review of the injury prevention plan (first plan that was completed by the center according to the director/owner) was dated 5/1/14. Plan of Correction: The director/owner will add the injury prevention plan to the parent handbook. The parent handbook will be reviewed annually and documentation of the date of the review will be on the parent handbook.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-40-K Description: Based on review of policies and procedures, the center failed to ensure that the written playground safety procedures contained all required components. Evidence: 1. The playground safety plan for the center did not have provisions for active supervision by staff to include scanning play activities and circulating among children. 1. The playground safety plan for the center did not include methods for maintenance of the resilient surfacing. Plan of Correction: The director/owner will include this in the playground plan and review it with all staff. It will be posted as is the current plan.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A Description: Based on record review, the center failed to ensure that three of five children's records reviewed contained complete information as required by the Standards. Evidence: 1. The fathers of children #1 and #2 were documented in the child's record as not allowed to pick up the child. The father's names were listed in the record and also listed as not allowed to pick up the child. There was no legal paperwork (custody papers by the courts) on file. This is required when the custodial parent requests the center not to release the child to the other parent. 2. There was no grade level for child #4 documented in the child's record. The child is nine years old and had a public school documented on the transportation authorization to be transported to this school. Plan of Correction: The director/owner will have the mothers remove the father's names today from the list of not allowed to pick up the child. The mothers will be asked to provide legal paperwork if it is available. In the future, the director/owner and the administrator will ensure that records are reviewed carefully when completed at enrollment to catch this and correct it at that time. The director/owner will have the mother of child #4 document the grade level and update annually. The director/owner and administrator will review forms carefully when completed at enrollment in the future to ensure that all information is documented accurately.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-240-B Description: Based on review of policies and procedures, the center failed to ensure that staff were provided in writing all of the required policies and procedures. Evidence: 1. The center's policies and procedures were reviewed with the director/owner. The following procedures required to be given in writing to staff were not available: procedures for identifying where attending children are at all times, procedures for action in case of ill or injured children, and medical emergencies. Plan of Correction: The director/owner will add the required procedures to the parent handbook. The director/owner will review the parent handbook at least annually to ensure all required policies and procedures are still correct.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-420-A Description: Based on review of policies and procedures (parent handbook) and interview with the director/owner, the center failed to ensure that the parents were provided in writing all of the required policies before the child's first day of attendance. Evidence: 1. The parent handbook was missing the description of established lines of authority for staff (organizational chart). The director/owner reviewed two different copies of the parent handbook and could not find it in either copy. Plan of Correction: The director/owner will add this to the parent handbook and use it as the only original copy with all required items in it. The director/owner will review the parent handbook at least annually to ensure all required policies and procedures are still correct.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-B Description: Based on review of policies and procedures, the center failed to ensure that the emergency preparedness plan contained all of the require procedural components that are required by the Standards. Evidence: 1. The center's emergency plan did not include procedural components for the following: sounding of alarms, ensuring complete evacuation of the building, ensuring facility containment, staff training requirement, drill frequency, plan review and update. Plan of Correction: The director/owner will add the missing components to the plan and review it with all staff. The director/owner will review the emergency plan at least annually to ensure all required policies and procedures are still correct.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-D Description: Based on review of documentation and interview with the director/owner, the center failed to ensure that a monthly evacuation drill (fire drill) was practiced. Evidence: 1. Documentation of the fire drills for the center for 2015 was observed. There was a shelter-in-place drill documented for March and October 2015. There was no documentation of a fire drill for these two months. The director/owner was asked about this and stated that only a shelter-in-place drill was practiced those months. No fire drill was practiced for two of the 11 months during 2015. Plan of Correction: The director/owner will ensure monthly drills are practiced and two shelter-in-place drills are practiced in addition to the fire drills for the future.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-M Description: Based on review of the center's injury/incident forms for September, the center failed to ensure that all required information for injuries were documented. Evidence: 1. Five reports were reviewed. None of the reports had documentation of the date, time, or method of notification to the parent of the accident/injury. 2. One injury form (9/15) did not have two signatures as required. There was a parent signature (no date). This same report that was completed and did not include: a time of the injury, type or circumstance of the injury. 3. Five of five reports did not have staff present when the accident/injury happened. Plan of Correction: The director/owner will use the model form for staff to document all required information. The director/owner will review the form with staff and monitor that all forms are completed accurately.

The director/owner will monitor sporadically to ensure the staff are following the Standards.
