An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed on 7/17/18. There were 48 children present in five groupings from six months through school-age. Five children's records and seven staff records were reviewed. Three prescription medications were observed for two children in care. The inspector arrived at the center at 12:00 pm and departed at 4:00 pm. The children were observed during lunch times, during nap, during free time in the classrooms, during outside times, and during afternoon snack. All infant activities were observed. There was discussion with the director about the following: hand washing requirements for infants (feeding and diapering), ensuring there is an address for staff emergency contact, updating Sworn Statement forms, updated TB for staff #7.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A Description: Based on record review, the center failed to ensure that there was appropriate legal paperwork on file when the custodial parent requests the center not to release the child to the other parent. Evidence: 1. The father of child #5 was listed on the paperwork as not allowed to pick up the child. There was no legal paperwork to support this. Child #5 was enrolled on 6/25/18. Plan of Correction: The director will have the parent provide the paperwork or remove the father's name as not authorized to pick up the child.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B Description: Based on observation, there were hazardous substances that were unlocked in several locations of the center. Evidence: 1. The soap and water solution and bleach and water solution were observed to be unlocked in the two year old classroom, the preschool classroom, and the bathroom in the hallway downstairs in the diapering area. All of the bottles (two in each location) were in the lock box on the walls at approximately four feet high but did not have any locking mechanism on the boxes. 2. There were two spray cans of air freshener and a spray can of insecticide observed in the infant classroom. Two sprays were on top of the diapering cubbies that were inaccessible to all children (approximately seven feet high) and the insecticide spray was on top of the refrigerator which as inaccessible to the children (approximately seven feet high). Plan of Correction: This was corrected during the inspection. All lock boxes were locked using a combination lock. The sprays in the infant room were locked in appropriate locking places.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-440-L Description: Based on observation and interviews, the center failed to ensure that pillows were not used for children under two years of age. Evidence: 1. There was a child in the toddler room who was observed using a pillow during nap time. The child was asleep with the pillow. 2. The teacher and director were asked about the age of the child. The child is 18 months old (child #1) as of today's date. Plan of Correction: The child's teacher will explain to the parents that pillows can not be used for children under two years of age and will send it home.
