Technical Assistance:
Discussed the following standards: operational responsibilities, supervision, care and protection, and centers own policies and procedures. There was also concern of parent/teacher/administration communication.

An investigation was conducted on 03/14/2016 in response to a self-reported incident received by our office regarding supervision and care and protection of children in care. Based upon multiple interviews the preponderance of evidence supports the violation for supervision and the complaint is deemed to be valid. Areas of non-compliance unrelated to the complaint are identified in this report. If you have any questions, please contact the inspector, 703 479-4746

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-40-E
Description: Based upon interviews and documentation, the center's activities did not comply with own policies. Evidence: There is a system to ensure that individuals who are not staff members or persons allowed to pick up children in care do not enter the areas where children are not under sight supervision. The center policy for certain activities is to always have a staff member accompany children taking extra curricular activities to ensure sight and sound compliance. The regularly scheduled area (Fellowship Hall) was being utilized for another activity. The Fellowship Hall allows for staff to maintain sight and sound of children in their care and on those children taken to do extracurricular activities. However, on 03/04/2016 child A was taken by staff A to an non-sanctioned area of the second floor music room and was allowed access by staff B. Staff A and child A were left alone while lessons were given and then returned to child A's classroom 20-30 minutes later by using the elevator, that according to interviews, children are not allowed to access.

Plan of Correction: Not available online. Contact Inspector for more information.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-F
Description: Based on multiple interviews and documentation reviewed, staff failed to keep children under 10 years of age within actual sight and sound supervision of staff at all times. Evidence: On 03/04/2016 child A was allowed to go with Staff A ( who teaches an extra curricular activity and it is the center's policy to not allow child(ren) to be by themselves with staff teaching the extracurricular activities). Child A and Staff A were allowed access to a room on the second floor with no additional supervision being provided for the duration of the lesson approximately 20-30 minutes. Staff A and child A returned to the child's classroom via elevator and child A rejoined their class.

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.
