Standard #: 22VAC40-185-400-B
Description: Based on interview, one staff member did not promote a child's emotional and social well-being. Evidence: On 9/28/2018 Staff #1 observed Staff #2 aggressively picking up Child #1 from the carpet area by both arms and placing them on the couch of the TK-B classroom. Staff #2 stated that Child #1 was asked to sit on the carpet with the rest of the class while they cleaned up from a sensory project but Child #1 was trying to take a book away from another classmate so they approached Child #1 and picked them up by both arms and sat him down on the couch. Staff #2 stated that they were "100% in control of [their] emotions but I was very firm and very strict because I needed [them] to stop." Staff #1 stated that when they told Staff #2 that they should not handle a child that way, Staff #1's response was "I don't care." Staff #2 confirmed that Staff #1 witnessed the incident and said "I don't care." when Staff #1 expressed concern.

Plan of Correction: Staff #2 was placed on administrative leave for one week. All of our staff has completed a Child Abuse and Neglect training and our District Manager had a conversation with all staff involved regarding alternative actions that can be taken when a teacher is feeling stressed.

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.
