Description: Based on record review, the facility did not obtain documentation of immunizations before a child attend the center. Evidence: Child #1 file did not contain documentation of immunizations.

Description: Based on record review, children's records did not contain all required information. Evidence: Child #1 file did not contain two emergency contacts. Child #2 file did not contain the addresses for both emergency contacts. Child #3 file did not contain a complete street address for their second emergency contact.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-400-B
Description: Based on interview and a review of the center's video recording, a staff member did not use behavioral guidance that was constructive in nature and resolved conflict. Evidence: On 7/18/2018, center management had self-reported an incident to the licensing inspector regarding a teacher that had swatted a child on the head. Video recording from the incident shows Staff #6 sitting on the floor of the Beginner A classroom surrounded by a group of children and applying sunscreen to Child #8. Child #9 was observed bouncing around in the group and hit Child #8 on the head. Staff #6's reaction was to swat Child #9 in the forehead. Staff #6 self-reported the incident to center management.

Plan of Correction: After investigating the report, this staff member has been terminated. We are currently retraining all staff on child guidance policies.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-490-E
Description: Based on observation, contaminated surfaces were not cleaned and sanitized. Evidence: In the Toddler A classroom, Child #6 was observed drinking from their sippy cup. Child #6 then handed their sippy cup to Child #7. Child #7 then began to drink out of the sippy cup. The teacher observed the exchange and quickly removed the sippy cup from Child #7's mouth. The teacher then handed the sippy cup back to Child #6 without cleaning or sanitizing the cup.

Plan of Correction: We will remind teachers that when children share cups that we need to thoroughly wash the cups before returning them back to the children.
