Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-C Description: Based on record review, interviews, and observation, the center is not following ratio requirements for the youngest child in the group. Evidence: 1. Toddler Class had 2 children in the group that were under 16 months The ratio in the room was being maintained at 5 to 1. Youngest child was an infant and required a ratio of 4 to 1. On October 29, there were 9 children with 2 staff. 2. The Two's class had had children in the room during the day that were under 24 months. The staff were working at a 8 to 1 ratio but the toddlers required a ratio of 5 to 1. The staff stated they have had 16 children in the room with 2 staff but two were under 2 years of age. 3. Staff in these classrooms stated they were told that there is a transition period given in which the younger child would not lower the ratio. Plan of Correction: We are working to keep all classes in ratio.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-E-4 Description: Based on observation, the center is reassigning children from his/her regular group and staff members repeatedly to maintain ratios. Evidence: 1. While in the three's class, a staff member brought a four year old child into that class and sat the child down with his snack. Staff in the three's class stated children are repeatedly moved in and out of their class because the age group below and/or above this class is over ratio so the staff bring the children to them. 10 minutes later, a staff member walked into the tree's class and took the child back to the fours class. Plan of Correction: We will work on creating staff hours that allow children to remain in their assigned classes.
