An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted on 2/07/2023 from 9:30am to 1:00pm. At the time of entrance, 53 children were in care with 10 staff members present. Children were observed playing with balls, getting ready to go outside, playing outside, painting with droppers, circle time, listening to a teacher read a story and group discussions and activities. Interactions between the children and staff were positive. The site was clean, organized and contained an abundant supply of developmentally appropriate materials. A selection of staff and children records, medications, the physical space, evacuation drills and attendance records were reviewed. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the violation notice. Please contact me if you have any questions at Stacy.Doyle@doe.virginia.gov or 571-835-0386.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-50-A Description: Based on observation, staff and children's records werenot treated confidentially.
1. In the Pre-K classroom, a list of children's allergies and dietary restrictions/preferences
were posted on the wall in the classroom and were not kept confidential.
2. The supplemental page of the inspection dated 9/28/2023 was posted on the parent bulletin board and is considered confidential.
Plan of Correction: I will create a model Allergy form packet for each classroom. Teachers will be
briefed on how the forms should look, where they are located in the classroom, and what can be posted without violating confidentiality. Management will check each classroom weekly to ensure the forms are in compliance with licensing requirements.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-270-A Description: Based on observation, Areas of the center outside were not maintained in a safe and operable condition.
1. Two black borders had large cracks in them that hold the mulch inside the playground area.
Plan of Correction: Materials have been purchased to patch the cracks in the playground ties. All cracks will be repaired and any small ones starting will be patched to prevent further cracking.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-420-E-3 Description: Based on interview, the center did not obtain parent confirmation that the required
information in the child's record is up to date.
1. Staff E stated they did not have parent confirmation that the required information in Child #1(start date 8/10/2020) or Child #3 (start date 6/01/2021) files were up to date.
Plan of Correction: I will create a form to send to parents annually. The form will be attached to
their Brightwheel Profile. The forms will be dated by year and sent out each year with video tutorials for parents on how to update their information.

when the most students are in attendance. The drill date will be communicated to
the team 1 week prior to taking place. Management will also complete a mock
shelter in place drill to ensure all members of the team know locations for shelter.
