An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today. The children were engaged in free play at the beginning of the inspection and then transitioned into their zones. Seventy two children were present with 10 staff. During the inspection an additional 11 children arrived from summer school. Ten staff files and seven children's files were reviewed today as well as a sample size of medication for 8 children. Please submit your plan of correction by 7/27/18. Arrival time: 12:45 pm Departure time: 3pm

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A
Description: Based on a review of 10 staff files and an interview with the director, it was determined that one staff did not have a file on site. Evidence: Staff B has been at the center for 2 to 3 weeks and there was no file on site at the beginning of the inspection.

Plan of Correction: The file was sent to the site during the visit, but we will make sure they are on site on the first day moving forward.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-C
Description: Based on a review of a sample size of eight medications, it was determined that medication authorization for two children had not been renewed after 10 work days. Evidence: Parental authorization for Benadry for child A was dated 6/12/18 and the medication authorization had not been renewed. Parental authorization for Tylenol for child B was dated 6/11/18 and the medication authorization had not been renewed.

Plan of Correction: We reminded the parent that we were still waiting on the form from the doctor for the Benadryl and had her complete a new 10 day form while she waits for it. The Tylenol was sent home with the other parent.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-J
Description: Based on observation, it was determined that medication was not kept locked. Evidence: The Licensing Inspector observed two large unlocked containers of medications in the office. The door to the office was open and unlocked.

Plan of Correction: The medications were moved back to their locking containers and the office doors will remain locked. We reminded staff to close the door behind them.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-D
Description: Based on a review of the escape drill log and an interview with the director, it was determined that the center is not practicing monthly evacuation drills. Evidence: The center had not completed an evacuation drill for June 2018.

Plan of Correction: The area manager reminded the site directors that the drill that was done in June was before summer camp so another drill was necessary with the summer camp students. A drill was completed 7/27, another will be completed before the end of July and we will continue doing them monthly moving forward.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-60-C-2
Description: Based on a review of ten staff files and an interview with the director, it was determined that one staff did not have a central registry finding on file within 30 days of employment. Evidence: Staff A was hired on 6/11/18 and does not have a central registry finding on file.

Plan of Correction: The HR representative has been following up with CPS but they are behind. We will continue following up with them and will document these attempts until the finding is received. The employee will continue to be with another teacher at all times.


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.
