Technical Assistance:
The Licensing Inspector has reviewed with the provider COVID-19 Essential Guidance for Child Care programs.

Comments:
This inspection was conducted by licensing staff using an alternate remote protocol, necessary due to a state of emergency health pandemic declared by the Governor of Virginia.
A monitoring inspection was initiated on 3/19/2021 and concluded on 3/22/2021. The director was contacted by telephone to initiate the inspection. There were 71 children present and 19 staff. The inspector emailed the director a list of items required to complete the inspection. The Inspector reviewed 5 children?s records and 5 staff records submitted by the facility to ensure documentation was complete.
Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance(s) with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the facility.

Violations:
Standard #: 63.2(17)-1720.1-B-4
Description: Based on a review of records, the licensee did not ensure that the results of a Criminal Records Search, Sex offender registry search and Child Abuse and Neglect registry Search are obtained for staff who have resided outside of Virginia within the past 5 years.
Evidence:
The record for staff #4 whose date of hire was documented as 2/10/2021 contained a Sworn Disclosure or Affirmation form which identified staff #4 as having resided in Florida within the past 5 years.
The record for staff #4 did not contain documentation of requests for a Criminal Records Search, Sex offender registry search and Child Abuse and Neglect registry Search for the state of Florida. When asked if these background check results were available, the program director stated that they had not been conducted.

Plan of Correction: The program director stated that she would contact the program's Human Resources person to have the required out of state background checks requested and /or mailed out for processing by close of business tomorrow (3/23/2021).
