Standard #: 22VAC40-185-40-E
Description: Based on records reviewed and staff interviews, staff did not follow the center's own policies and procedures. Evidence: 1. The center's "transition tracking Policy" states that "Teachers are required to use the We Care Transition Tracking Sheet to account for children in their care and conduct a Face to Name Roll Call whenever a transition through a door or gate occurs, followed by a Head Count". 2. On 4/18/2019 at approximately 5:10pm, Staff 1 and Staff 2 walked the Twos-1 and Twos-2 groups from the playground to their classroom. To get to the Twos-1 classroom from the playground, a distance of approximately 50 feet, the group must exit the playground gates, walk down a ram, enter the building, go down a short hallway, and make a left down the main corridor that leads to the Twos-1 classroom on the left. 3. Staff 1 and Staff 2 stated that when leaving the playground, Staff 1 and Staff 2 conducted their Name to Face when entering the building; however, a Head Count was not documented on the tracking sheet at that time. 5. Child 1 ( 2years old) was left alone and unsupervised outdoors for approximately 10 minutes when their group returned to the classroom and until the child was found by a parent who returned to the playground in search of a missing item.

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.
