Description: Based on multiple interviews, it was determined that a forbidden action was used on a child in care. Evidence: On 3/8/2022 at approximately 4:20 pm, staff #2 witnessed child #1 arrive on the playground wearing handcuffs on both hands. Child #1 proceeded to remove the handcuffs and run away. Staff #1 then chased child #1, caught them, and placed the handcuffs back on. Staff #1 then walked child #1 by the arm, in handcuffs, over to the fence and removed the handcuff from the child's right hand and attached the handcuff to the fence. Child #1 removed the handcuffs and staff #1 replaced them repeatedly. Staff #2 stated that they observed child #1 going back into the classroom approximately 20 minutes later still in handcuffs. Staff #1 admitted that they handcuffed the child because the child was hitting and kicking and not listening.

Plan of Correction: Staff is no longer employed at this center.


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.
