Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on classroom observation and discussion with staff on September 12, 2018, program staff failed to ensure hazardous substances/cleaning supplies were kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevented access by the children. Evidence: 1. On this date, the licensing inspector (L.I.) observed a spray bottle of Lysol All Purpose Cleaner and a plastic bottle of Great Value Dishwashing Liquid on the counter near the classroom sink. The Lysol All Purpose Cleaner contained the words "Hazards" and "Warning" and the Great Value Dishwashing Liquid contained the word "Caution." 2. Staff #1 confirmed the location of the cleaning supplies.

Plan of Correction: Lysol and dishwashing liquid have been placed in the locked cabinet.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-A
Description: Based on classroom observation and discussion with staff and children on September 12, 2018, the program failed to ensure all children washed their hands with soap and running water or disposable wipes after eating snack. Evidence: 1. On this date, the licensing inspector (L.I.) observed two children leave the snack table and immediately line up to go to the gym and two children leave the snack table and participate in classroom activities. 2. One child confirmed that she did not wash her hands following snack and, following discussion, she went to the restroom to wash hands.

Plan of Correction: Children are being dismissed by table, instead of their own independent dismissal, to ensure that they have washed their hands. Specific staff are responsible for each table, so that all children are accounted for. Disposable wipes are being looked into as an alternative to post-snack hand-washing.

Staff #1 confirmed the lack of two triangular bandages in the first aid kit.

Plan of Correction: Triangular bandages have been added to the first aid kit.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-K

Staff #7 confirmed the date of hire and the date the sworn statement was signed/dated.

Plan of Correction: In the future, the sworn statement or affirmation will be completed prior to the date of employment.
