Description: Based on review of documentation and interviews with staff, it was determined that staff failed to ensure that children under the age of 10 years of age were within actual sight and sound supervision of staff at all times. Evidence: On April 3, 2019, at approximately 4:10 p.m. Child A, age 4 and Child B, age 5 were unsupervised in the bathroom on the playground. A third child reported that Child A and Child B were in the bathroom together to staff at approximately 4:17 p.m. According to staff interviews and written statements, no staff observed the children entering the bathroom.

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. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
