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 complaint inspection was initiated on June 4, 2021 and concluded on June 9, 2021. A complaint was received by the department regarding allegations in the area of behavioral guidance. The director was contacted by telephone to conduct the investigation. The inspector emailed the director a list of documentation required to complete the investigation.
The evidence gathered during the investigation supported the allegation of non-compliance with standards or law and violations were issued.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-400-B Complaint related: Yes Description: Based on staff interviews and observation the facility did not ensure that behavioral guidance was constructive in nature, age and stage appropriate, and intended to redirect children to appropriate behavior.

2. When time out is used, it shall be used sparingly and shall not exceed one minute for each year of the child's age.

A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information.
