Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-F
Description: Based on interview, children under the age of 10 years were not within actual sight/sound.

Evidence -
1. The Director stated (during an interview conducted on the date of inspection - 10/07/2020), that a total of 9 children within the Explorers Room (5 1/2 up to 10 years) were not within sight/sound supervision for approximately several minutes while they occupied both the girls and boys bathrooms. This incident occurred on 10/01/2020 at approximately 3 pm.
2. Staff #1 instructed the 4 boys and 5 girls to go together as a group in their respected bathrooms; 4 boys in the boys bathroom and 5 girls in the girls bathroom. This action was done in lieu of the children closing their eyes while the teacher hid leaves for them to find throughout the classroom.
3. The purpose of the children going into the bathrooms was to shield/hide their eyes as part of this game developed by the teacher. It was not to use the bathroom as designed or as a punishment in a confined space. No children were reported hurt or injured.
4. This incident was self-reported to the Division of Licensing by the center.

Plan of Correction: This center was handled by the center on an administrative level. Further training and instruction on policies and procedures with regards to appropriate sight/sound supervision shall be given to all staff.
