Comments:
An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today from 9:30am until 12:30pm. There were 64 children present with 15 staff. The physical plant, including the playground, children's files, staff files, emergency plans, menu's, injury logs, evacuation logs, attendance logs and emergency supplies were inspected. The children were observed picking vegetables from the garden, reading books, painting, hand washing and eating snack. Areas of non compliance were cited in the Violation Notice. If you have any question, please contact me at Tanya.Johnson1@dss.virginia.gov or at 671.423.6392.

Evidence: 1) Child #1's file is missing documentation for a physicians phone number. 2) Child #2's file is missing documentation of a work number and employment for the mother and is missing the address for the second emergency contact.

Plan of Correction: I will get the information from parents and place in children's files.
