Technical Assistance:
1. Older rugs/carpets in classrooms are beginning to become worn/stained and will soon need to be steam cleaned and/or replaced to ensure the areas are being maintained in a clean and safe condition. 2. Discussed supervision requirements, with specific emphasis on maintaining sight and sound supervision of the children. 3. Trash/litter should be picked up daily from the outdoor play areas.

Comments:
Conducted an unannounced renewal inspection 11:30am-1:40pm. Observed 48 children + 8 direct-care staff. Ratios were in compliance. Children were observed having indoor free-play, washing hands, eating lunch, and taking naps during the inspection. The infants were being held, fed, and having play time on the floor. Staff were observed promptly and appropriately responding to a head injury of a child with providing first aid, contacting the parent, and documenting the injury. Inappropriate behavior guidance was observed and cited as a repeat violation. The center was found to be clean, safeguarded appropriately, and sufficiently supplied with toys and equipment for the children. Previously cited hazards in classrooms and on the outdoor playground have been corrected. Medication management was in compliance. Required documents were posted. Two of the three violations cited in this report are repetitive, one violation is a systemic deficiency, and have been either the basis of the Provisional License, or cited during the Provisional License period.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-90--A
Description: Based on records reviewed, it was determined that 1 of 2 children's records did not include a signed written agreement between the parent and center, to include authorization for emergency medical care, the ill-child policy, and the communicable disease policy, by the first day of the child's attendance. Evidence: An unsigned copy was in the file for Child #9, who began attendance at the center in October 2015.

Plan of Correction: The parent signed the written agreement (enrollment agreement addendum) All newly enrolled parents will be required to sit with the CD or AD to go over all paperwork to ensure it is complete.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-290-3
Description: Based on observations made, it was determined that an electrical outlet did not have a protective cover. Evidence: An outlet in the 4's classroom did not have a cover.

Plan of Correction: Electrical cover was immediately replaced. Extra covers are being ordered and placed in all classrooms. Opening and closing staff will be responsible for ensuring all outlets are covered. Throughout the day management will check to ensure outlets are covered.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-400-B
Description: Based on observations made, it was determined that behavior guidance used was not constructive in nature, appropriate, or redirective to the appropriate behavior. Evidence: 1. Staff #10, working in the school-age group threatened to take away lunch and the afternoon activity when children were not cleaning the room as requested. She was heard by the inspector making the following statements in a loud voice tone-(1) "...I guess we won't have lunch today because the room is not clean..." and "...no water day today because no one is cleaning up..." 2. Staff #10 did not address a variety of behaviors the children were displaying/engaging, to include: (1) One boy was observed lying on top of another boy face-to-face on multiple occasions. (2) Another boy was observed climbing on the futon sofa over top of other children. (3) A girl was observed sitting on a tabletop.

Plan of Correction: A one on one meeting with the staff member took place to reiterate the expectation of appropriate positive guidance. All staff will be attending a re-training on positive guidance. Completion expected by August 26. Newly hired staff will be required to attend positive guidance training within 30 days of hire.
