A renewal inspection was initiated on 03/23/2022 and concluded on 03/29/2022. The facility submitted documentation to the inspector on 03/23/2022 and the inspector conducted an unannounced inspection on-site on 03/28/2022 from approximately 11:15am to 1:30pm. On 03/28/2022, there were 10 children present with three staff directly supervising. The inspector reviewed compliance in the areas of administration, physical plant, staffing and supervision, programming, special care and emergencies and nutrition. A total of four 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.
Please complete the `plan of correction' and `date to be corrected' for each violation cited on the Violation Notice and return it to me within 5 business days from the date of receipt. Please specify how the deficient practice will be or has been corrected. Your plan of correction should contain: 1) steps to correct the noncompliance with the standards, 2) measures to prevent the noncompliance from occurring again, and 3) person(s) responsible for implementing each step and/or monitoring any preventative measure(s).
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-70 Description: Based on a review of three staff records and interviews, the center did not ensure one staff record contained all the required information.
Evidence: 1) The record for Staff #3, hired on 12/08/21, did not contain documentation that two or more references as to character and reputation as well as competency were checked before employment or volunteering. 2) During interviews, a member of management reported the references for Staff #3 were obtained prior to hire, but documentation was not kept on file as required.
Plan of Correction: Per the Director: "Yes, I have printed such reference letters and added them into this teacher's folder."
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.
