Comments:
This inspection was conducted by licensing staff using an alternate remote protocol, including telephone contacts, documents review, and interviews.
A monitoring inspection was initiated on 8/2/2021 and concluded on 9/7/2021 in response to a self-reported incident by the facility regarding behavior guidance. The Director was contacted by telephone and a virtual inspection was conducted. The inspector reviewed compliance in the areas of administration, physical plant, staffing and supervision, programming, medication, special care and emergencies and nutrition. A total of 1 child record and 2 staff records were reviewed.
Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the program. If you have any questions, please contact me at shahana.green@doe.virginia.gov.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-400-B
Description: Based on observation, behavioral guidance provided by staff was not constructive in nature or age and stage appropriate.

Evidence:
1. On 7/28/2021 at approximately 9:30am in the Toddler classroom, Staff member A was observed reading a book to the children that had buttons that were different colors. Staff A was observed telling Child A to "push yellow Child A. Yellow." during circle time. Child A was observed reaching for the book, and Staff A stated "See, Child A doesn't know anything." while slowly pulling the book away and then proceeding to ask another child to press yellow.

Plan of Correction: We have partnered Staff member A with a more seasoned teacher and went over proper behavior guidance techniques.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-60-C-2
Description: Based on a review of staff records, 1 out of 2 staff records did not have a central registry finding within 30 days of employment.

Evidence:

1. Staff A (doh: 6/21/2021) did not have a central registry finding on file at the time of the inspection.

Plan of Correction: We will follow-up on the central registry and update licensing with the results.
