An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today with the director from 1:20 pm to 3:25 pm. Fifty one children were present with seven staff providing supervision. The ages of the children ranged from 5 months to 5 years. Most of the children were napping during the walk through of the building.
Six children and four staff files were reviewed as well as medications for two children.
Send a copy of the health inspection once completed. The most recent fire inspection is dated 10/7/22. The playground was not inspected today due to the inclement weather.
The areas of non compliance are outlined on the violation notice.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-140-A Description: Based on a review of six children's files and interview, it was determined that the child A first attended the center on 10/19/22 and there was no physical on file within 30 days after the first day of attendance. Plan of Correction: I will get the physical.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-80-A Description: Based on observation and interview, it was determined that the center is not maintaining a written record of daily attendance that documents the arrival and departure of each child in care as it occurs.
Two children were listed on the attendance log, however three children were present in the toddler A classroom.
Plan of Correction: I will add this newly enrolled child to the attendance roster. We will make sure to maintain up to date attendance.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-260-B Description: Based on a review of recordkeeping and interview, it was determined that there has been no annual inspection from the health department.
The health inspection is dated 9/30/20.
Plan of Correction: I will reach out to the health department and have them schedule an inspection as soon as possible.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-270-A Description: Based on observation, it was determined that the center is not maintained in a safe condition.
The Licensing Inspector (LI) observed a fan on top of the cabinet in the Twos A classroom. The cord to the fan was plugged into the outlet and hung in reach of the children, which presented a hazard of a child pulling on the cord and the fan falling on top of a child(ren).
Plan of Correction: The fan was immediately removed and no longer presents a hazard. We will talk with staff about the importance of maintaining a safe environment.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-550-F Description: Based on interview and a review of recordkeeping, it was determined that the center has not practiced lockdown procedures at least annually.
The last documented lockdown drill is dated 2/26/18.
Plan of Correction: We will conduct a lockdown drill this month.
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.
