An investigation was conducted in conjunction with the local agency CPS regarding a self-reported incident in regards to the area of behavioral guidance. Interviews were conducted, documentation, and video recordings were reviewed. The self reported incident regarding behavioral guidance is valid.
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 #: 8VAC20-780-400-B Description: Based on interviews and review of video recordings it was determined that behavioral guidance was not always appropriate and constructive in nature. Evidence: On 02/16/2022 child A is seen playing at a table. Staff A then attempts to verbally redirect child A (Age: 3 years) to a different location. When the child does not move Staff A forcefully places their hands on the back of child A to guide them to a different area. Child A then falls down on their knees. Staff A is then seen raising their arms and saying "what happened?" to indicate that child A fell down by mistake. Staff A is not seen on video comforting child A. Child A did not sustain any injuries. Plan of Correction: We immediately added positive guidance training to our professional development day that was held on 02/21/2022. All staff took training including Staff A.
