Technical Assistance:
We discussed the requirements for staff records, staff qualifications, children's records, posted emergency procedures, storage of hazardous substances, and sight supervision. The risk assessments for violations were provided. We reviewed the requirements for injury records.

Thank you for your assistance during the unannounced renewal inspection conducted from 1:15 PM to 2:50 PM at the main office for the staff record review and from 3:20 PM to 6:15 PM at the school site. Today, there were thirty-three school age children with three to four staff. One student intern was assisting staff. I viewed program activities, staffing, supervision, interactions with children, posted information, five records for staff, staff qualifications, staff training, five records for children, agency inspections, insurance, procedures, snack/menu, daily routines, injury records, emergency supplies and drill records, indoor and outdoor areas. The children enjoyed active play in the gym and outside on the playground. Computer time and homework assistance have been regularly offered. Art and table activities have been available in the cafeteria. Staff were observed providing communication with parents regarding children's experiences and time in the program. The recommendation for issuance of the license will be determined after receipt of the required background checks for one new board officer. Let me know if you need any assistance. 540/430-9259

The cabinet in the computer lab had Lysol wipes and a locking mechanism was not used on the cabinet doors.

Description: Based on observation of the transition of a group of fifteen children, ages six to eight years, the majority of the children leaving the gym bathroom hallway were briefly without sight supervision in the stairway. Evidence: The inspector was entering the stairway from the hall and walking down stairs on the left side as children were coming through double doors from the gym bathroom hallway. There were up to eleven children seen walking upstairs, some stopped on the stairs or at the hall door, and no staff were within view. As the final four children came to the stairway door, they were with two staff.

Plan of Correction: The unit director will instruct the staff to transition children using procedures that keep children within sight of a staff person at all times. The unit director or administrative staff who conduct orientation training will provide consistent information about meeting all applicable licensing standards, including sight and sound supervision of the children. As needed, the administrative staff will provide additional training regarding the requirements for sight and sound supervision of children. The director and/or administrative staff will conduct periodic observations of the transitions of groups of children to make sure all required procedures for adherence to sight and sound supervision of children are followed as expected.

There were no secondary routes for evacuation or procedures for shelter-in-place. There were not any posted procedures for the cafeteria area and the lower floor gym.

Plan of Correction: The assigned administrative staff and director will make sure the emergency procedures/maps for the primary and secondary evacuation routes and tornado warning shelter-in-place locations are posted in conspicuous locations for the staff and children to view on each floor of the building. The information will be applicable to the areas used during after school hours. The administrative staff will no longer assume that the school's posted emergency maps will show all required procedures for the after school program.

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.
