Standard #: 8VAC20-780-410-2
Complaint related: Yes
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that children were not placed in any space that a child can not freely exit himself, such as a high chair when not used for its intended purpose. Evidence:
1. On April 7, 2022, Staff A told Child A (age 2) "if you don't start listening, I'm going to put you in the high chair for time out. Do you want to sit in the high chair?" 2. The parents of Child B (age 2) reported the following: Staff C said that "the child would be screaming and crying and throwing a tantrum so bad that she would be rocking the high chair back and forth to the point that she could have fallen over". During these times, they did not remove Child B from the high chair, but instead stabilized it by holding it down so she couldn?t shake it.

Plan of Correction: Not available online. Contact Inspector for more information.


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.
