The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced complaint inspection on September 11, 2019 in response to a complaint received by our department on September 6, 2019. The inspector was on site from 9:15 AM to 11:50 AM. The allegations of the complaint were inadequate staff-to-child ratios, a failure to maintain a record of children's injuries, incorrect background check timeframes, inadequate supervision, and infant feeding requirements. Classroom observations were made, interviews were conducted, and records were reviewed. And additional unannounced inspection, on September 24, 2019 was conducted from approximately 11:00 AM to 11:50 AM for a review of additional documentation. The preponderance of the evidence gathered during the investigation supports one or more of the allegations and the complaint is determined valid. Violations were found in areas that were not a part of the original complaint. See the violation notice for more detail.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-E-3 Complaint related: Yes Description: Based on documentation review and interviews, the facility did not ensure the required staff-to-child ratio of one staff member for every eight children was maintained for two-year-old children whenever children are in care.
