An unannounced focus inspection was conducted today, 1/18/17. A review of the violations from the previous inspection was conducted. Upon arriving to the center the children began to come into the center from the various schools. There are 44 children in care with four staff and one volunteer. The children washed hands and had snack then split into three groups, one group went outside, one competed homework and one worked on club requirements. We discussed sight and sound supervision, from entering and exiting the bus, during outside play and when children need to use the rest room. A violation notice was completed regarding the violations found during today's inspection. Inspection began: 3:05 pm and ended 5:15 pm approximately.

The round swing, swings, slide and silver slide on the new play area had surfacing under them that measured two inches or less. Plan of Correction: The program director will consult with the maintenance personnel at the recreation center to request that the resilient surfacing is maintained.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-F Description: Based on observation during the focus inspection the staff failed to provide sight and sound supervision of the children in care. Evidence: 1. Staff #1 was outside assisting the children getting off the school bus. The children have to get off the bus and then go around a corner to get to the center's door. 2.
