Comments:
Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced monitoring inspection conducted from 9:10 AM to 12:30 PM. Today, there were fourteen children, ages four and five years, with two teachers. This afternoon, thirteen preschool age children, ages three to five years, attended with two teachers were present. Fifteen children have attended the two day program. I viewed program activities, daily routines, equipment, staffing, supervision, interactions with children, posted information, agency reports, five records for staff, staff qualifications, staff training, five records for children, snack, emergency supplies and drill records, medication, indoor and outdoor areas. The children have enjoyed planned learning them activities such as this week's theme of weather. Teachers were observed facilitating children's participation in group activities and choices at interest areas of the classroom. Active play was provided outside. Let me know if you have any questions. 540/430-9259

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-90--A
Description: Based on a review of five records for children, and an interview with administrative staff, the required written agreements between parents and the preschool program was not in the child's record by the first day of attendance for child 2. Evidence: According to staff, child 2's first date of attendance was on Monday, February 26, 2018. The second page of the registration form was left blank and contained written agreements for the following: emergency medical care, parent's arrangements to pick-up a child when the center informs a parent that their child became ill, and the agreement for parents to inform the preschool within twenty-four hours if their child or immediate household member has a reportable communicable illness, or provide notice immediately if the illness is life threatening.

Plan of Correction: The director will have the parent complete the written agreements on page 2 of the registration form and make sure a signature is provided. Also, the director will sign the written agreement section. In the future, the director or teacher who accepts the initial records from parents at the time of enrollment will make sure the required information was provided before the child begins participating in the program.
