Technical Assistance:
Technical assistance today included record keeping; physical environment and CPR/First Aid Training; and regular playground reviews of equipment/resilient material.

Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection took place today from 10:15 am - 12:00 pm. There were 19 children present with 6 staff. I observed children busy designing "junk" art from cupcake liners, pipe cleaners, styrofoam and other materials; involved in an art/science experiment of blending paint with shaving cream; and involved in dramatic play with building materials and housekeeping items (packing for vacation!) Today was "monochromatic" day: one of the special dress-for-the-theme days at the end of the school year. Record keeping was well-organized. If you have any questions, please contact me at brenda.kuhlman@dss.virginia.gov

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-140-A
Description: Based on a review of records today, not all children were found to have a physical exam available as required. Evidence: There was no documentation of a physical exam for Child # 1, 2, and 3. All have been in attendance over 30 days.

Plan of Correction: Children will always bring in a physical exam within 30 days of beginning.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Description: Based on a review of children's records today, some information was found to be missing. Evidence: There was only one emergency contact number for Child # 1 and #2.

Plan of Correction: All information will be complete.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation during today's inspection, there were some areas that were not maintained in a safe condition. Evidence: Outdoors: The wooden bench toward the back of the playground was observed to be missing a slat and some nails were loose. There were some small areas of splintering wood in the wooden climbing equipment and gate. There was a protruding nail observed on the side of the wooden "stage" and on the back fence.

Plan of Correction: These will be repaired.
