Standard #: 22VAC40-185-80-A
Description: Based on a review of the written attendance record and an interview with staff, it was determined that the facility did not ensure all children were included on the written attendance record. Evidence: The attendance record for the Children's House listed 12 children in attendance however only 11 children were present in the class.

Plan of Correction: In the Children's House there were 12 children who were in attendance. One child had gone on a field trip. This was known by all.

Description: Based on observation, and an interview with staff, it was determined that not all restroom areas were equipped with soap, toilet paper, and disposable towels within reach of children. Evidence: There were no paper towels within reach of the children in the toddler classroom bathroom. A roll of paper towels was on a high shelf and three cloth towels were hanging by the sink.

Plan of Correction: All bathrooms have soap, toilet paper and paper towels for use by all.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-D
Description: Based on observation, and an interview with staff, the facility failed to ensure that each grouping of children has at least one staff member who meets the qualifications of program leader regularly present.

Evidence: When the LI arrived at the facility at 10:15 am, and rang the doorbell, Staff #2 left the infant classroom to answer the door. When the LI asked to speak to the person in charge, the staff member walked towards the stair well to call for assistance and/or ring a bell. The children were out of staff sight and sound supervision for less than 2 minutes.

Plan of Correction: This staff member was trained again that she may not leave to answer the door no matter who it is. Communication for staff support should have been implemented as trained.
