Standard 430.I was reviewed with the program director: If combs, toothbrushes, or other personal articles are used, they shall be individually assigned. A written modification request should be submitted if changes are made to the infant room. Infant rooms are measured at 35 square feet. Refer to Standard 310.C. The following should be address before safety hazards arise: *Loose gutter and metal around door frame of SA playground exit door. The metal is not sharp nor is the gutter however, if not repaired these areas may present a safety hazard to children as they enter and exit the playground from the classroom. *There is a four inch area of fray on the area rug in the four-year old classroom. Staff report this is not a trip hazard however, this should be repaired in some way to eliminate the possibility of someone tripping. *The rubber has worn away in four areas on the first step of the preschool climber. (First platform) This has resulted in the exposure of the metal underneath. The metal is not sharp at this time however, if not addressed this has potential to become a safety hazard. 22VAC40-191-40-9 (Background Checks for Child welfare Agencies) was reviewed with the program director: The background checks remain valid at the facility if no more than 12 consecutive months have passed from when a person (i) began a leave of absence from that facility; (ii) was terminated from employment at that facility; or (iii) was transferred to a facility owned and operated by the same employer or entity, unless there is a criminal conviction or a founded complaint of child abuse and neglect during that period.
An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted on 7/8/2016 from 10:35am - 2:15pm. The following staff-to-child ratios were observed: *Infants - 6 x 2 staff *Toddler/two's - 10 x 2 staff *Three's - 10 x 2 staff *Four's - 10 x 1 staff *School Age - 21 x 2 staff Children were observed during morning program time, lunch and nap. The SA class was observed returning from a field trip - transportation & field trip procedures reviewed. The inspector additionally reviewed records for four children, five staff, medication, emergency supplies, injury documentation for June 2016, documentation of emergency practice drills, updated written policies, hand washing, sanitizing of tables and infant nap/feeding/activities. Please complete the "plan of correction" for each violation cited on the violation notice and return it to me within 10 calendar days from today. You will need to specify how the deficient practice will be or has been corrected. Just writing the word "corrected" is not acceptable. Your plan of correction must contain: 1) steps to correct the noncompliance with the standard(s), 2) measures to prevent the noncompliance from occurring again; and 3) person(s) responsible for implementing each step and/or monitoring any preventive measure(s).
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-160-A Description: Based on record review, the center failed to ensure that each staff member shall submit documentation of a negative tuberculosis screening. Documentation of the screening shall be submitted no later than 21 days after employment and shall have been completed within 12 months prior to or 21 days after employment. Evidence: Staff #1 lacks a TB screening. Staff #1 has a hire date of 6/3/2014 and was working on the day of the inspection. Plan of Correction: All staff files will remain valid even when staff take a leave of absence. This will be tracked by using the staff file monthly checklist.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that outside areas of the center shall be maintained in a safe condition. Evidence: The following unsafe conditions were observed on the outdoor playgrounds. a. Vines were observed growing through and down from the back fence on the school age playground. The vines were observed in 22 areas of the fence and most were within easy reach of children. These vines are a safety hazard if ingested, pulled on or touched as the vines appear to be a mixture of poison ivy and Virginia creeper. Insects and vermin are also attracted to large bundles of vines. b. An area of peeling paint, measuring 11 inches in length, was observed on the second platform stair of the preschool climber. Peeling paint is hazardous if ingested. c. The grass on the toddler playground measures between 12 and 19 inches in height. Staff report children did use the playground on 7/5/2016 and 7/6/2016 and that the grass was high on these days. Uncut grass attracts insects and vermin. Plan of Correction: Work orders have been placed to have the lawnscaping company come in and remove the vines and cut the grass.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-570-I Description: Based on observation and interview, the center failed to ensure that a one-day's emergency supply of disposable bottles and nipples appropriate for the children in care shall be maintained at the center. Evidence: 1. The inspector could not locate any emergency bottles for infants in the classroom supply closet. Three staff verified there were no extra emergency bottles on hand because they had recently been used for a child who lacked any bottles. Plan of Correction: An emergency supply of bottles and nipples will be placed in the emergency bag.

Plan of Correction: All staff files will remain valid even when staff take a leave of absence this will be tracked by using the staff file monthly checklist.
