An investigation was conducted today following a self-reported concern from the facility. Records were reviewed, staffmembers were interviewed and staff were observed in the classroom. The following licensing standards were examined: 400 B: Behavioral guidance shall be constructive in nature, age and stage appropriate; and shall be intended to redirect children to appropriate behavior and resolve conflicts. 410-2: The following actions or threats are forbidden: enclosure in a confined chair that the child cannot freely exit himself. After review, the facility was found to be in violation of the two standards, and therefore the self-report is being deemed valid. A Violation Notice was issued, and it is of note that the center took immediate action to remedy the situation, as described in the Plan of Correction. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
