Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A
Description: Based on interviews and review of records, staff did not ensure the care, protection and guidance of children. Evidence: 1. The inspector reviewed a video of the classroom from 10/17/2017. Three staff members and a parent were viewed in the classroom. Staff #1 lined up the children by the classroom door and proceeded with them to the bathroom down the hall. Child #1 was observed turning in the opposite direction out of the classroom of where the bathroom is located toward the elevator. 2. Staff #1 said and wrote a summary of the account stating that once she got to the bathroom, she started to count the children and there were only 10 children and there were supposed to be eleven. Staff #1 let staff #2 know that one child was missing; staff #2 started to look for child #1 when staff #3 appeared with child #1 and stated that child #1 had gotten off the elevator downstairs by the cafeteria where head start staff saw him and staff #3 brought him back up to the classroom. The approximate time that child #1 was out of sight and sound supervision was 2 minutes.

Plan of Correction: Staff was reminded right after the incident occurred that direct supervision of children is priority at all times. They were also reminded that supervision is basic to prevention of harm and that a staff person must be able to see and hear the children at all times. All staff is trained at pre-service of safety policies and procedures. Staff shall regularly count children on a scheduled basis, before and after every transition, and whenever leaving one area and arriving at another, to confirm location of every child at all times. All three staff members are to be with children at all times during transition. Management staff will perform unannounced monitoring visits on site, to ensure that all safety procedures are being followed. Staff will receive reprimands for their action involving their action involving this incident.
