Standard #: 22VAC40-185-400-A
Description: Based on staff interviews, it was determined that a staff member did not use behavioral guidance to promote a child's well-being and growth, by interacting with the child to provide needed help, comfort and support. Evidence: Staff#1 stated that they used a harsh tone with a two year old child, after the child had a toileting accident. The staff confirmed that the two's class was on the playground, when the staff member took child#1 to the restroom. The child tried to use the potty for approximately 10 minutes, then the staff member and the child began to walk back to the playground. The staff member stated that they noticed child#1 trying to hide behind the diaper changing table, and shortly after the child began to cry. On their way back to the playground the child had a toileting accident. The staff member admitted that although they did not yell at the child, they did use a harsher tone than they should have when they realized that the child had a toileting accident.

Plan of Correction: All staff received training on positive behavioral guidance and strategies.


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.
