A renewal inspection was conducted on March 14, 2022. There were twenty-two children present with two staff supervising. 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 three child records and three 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.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-340-F Description: Based on observation and interview, facility did not ensure children are within actual sight and sound supervision of staff, except that staff need only be able to hear a child who is using the restroom provided certain requirements are met.
Evidence: At approximately 4:20 pm, two school age children were observed not in sight and sound supervision of staff. One child was observed coming from the water fountain in an adjoining hallway and and another child was observed going to the restroom that was located two hallways from the program. Staff confirmed children, unless they are four years old, are allowed to go alone to the bathroom and to the water fountain. Staff confirmed they are not able to hear and see children from the cafeteria when they go to the water fountain and restroom. At least three adults were observed in the hallways that are not a part of the licensed program.

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