An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 8:45am -11:00am. Upon arrival there were 31 children with 6 staff present. A sample of 4 children and 2 staff records were reviewed in addition to 1 medication. Children were observed during circle time, pledge of allegiance, musical chairs and centers.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-400-A Description: Based on observation the center did not ensure staff interacted with children in order to promote the child's emotional, and social well-being and provide needed help, comfort, support. Evidence: The 3 year-old classroom was observed during morning circle from 9:15am -10:00am. Staff did not interact with the children in order to promote the children's emotional well-being, help, comfort or support. Staff told the group of 3 year-old children to stand, place their right hands over their heart and recite the pledge of allegiance. Some children did not know which hand was their right hand. Staff did not go to the children to show them how, but instead gave verbal directives in a harsh tone to "use your right hand." The children also played musical chairs, which resulted in a child crying because they were out. Staff responded to the crying child by telling him to "stop crying." Other statements made to the children were, "Stop!, No!, Get off! Stand-up! Sit down, I told you to stop!" Plan of Correction: The following corrective action was provided by the director during the exit interview: The director has spoken to this staff in the past. The director will speak to staff again about providing positive redirection and care and comfort to the children. Staff will be sent to training.
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.
