Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-400-B
Description: Based on a review of video footage and staff interview, behavioral guidance was not constructive in nature, age and stage appropriate, or intended to redirect children to appropriate behavior.

Evidence:
1. Video footage from 8/3/2021 showed Staff A approaching Child A and attempting to direct Child A to go to the table. When Child A resists, Teacher A picks up Child A under both arms and firmly puts the child in a chair at the table and pushes the chair in. Child A begins to cry.
2. Staff B (who witnessed the incident) stated that "Staff A grabbed Child A by two arms and the way Staff A sat Child A down was a bit rough. Staff A had Child A by both arms and sat Child A down pretty hard."

Plan of Correction: Retrained all current employees on positive guidance and redirection.

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. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
