An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on 1/11/23 from 7:30am to 9:40am with program staff then the Director and Assistant Director. There were eight children in care at the beginning of the inspection, ranging in age from two-years to five-years-old, supervised by one staff as the cook prepared breakfast. More children and more staff arrived as the inspection progressed. The children were observed having free play in centers then cleaning up and washing hands for breakfast, then eating breakfast. Five child records and four staff records were reviewed. The Center has seven staff with current certification in CPR and First Aid, and four staff trained in Daily Health Observation Training. One medication and authorization form were reviewed and the center has five staff current in Medication Administration Training (MAT). The attendance and emergency drill log were reviewed.

Please complete the "Plan of Correction" and "Date to be Corrected" areas on the Violation Notice for each violation cited and return to me by close of business on 1/19/23.

Standard #: 8VAC20-780-245-L
Description: Based on observation and review of staff records, the center did not ensure that there was always at least one staff member on duty who had obtained within the last three years instruction in performing the daily health observation of children.

Plan of Correction: We are getting everyone DHO trained, while seeing who had and did not have DHO, we did notice that there was one teacher on staff with DHO training at the time of the inspection. We are adding DHO to our new hire checklist to be completed within the first 30 days of employment.

Standard #: 8VAC20-780-350-B-3

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.
