Technical Assistance:
We talked about the requirements for daily attendance records, and indoor safety. The risk assessments for violations were provided.

We talked about the annual emergency response training for caregivers and the chimney inspection that are now due.

The large play yard is currently not in use while you are making changes with the sandbox area. Also, we talked about securing the ends of the coated wire and/or removing wires at the swing support posts, removal of the section of lattice which is on the ground in the use zone of the composite structure, recovering the landscape material at the composite structures, and making sure the ladders and zip line area is off-limits to children in care.

Comments:
Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced inspection conducted from 9:29 AM to 2:15 PM. Today, there were nine children present, ages infancy through preschool (twenty-three points), with two caregivers. A school age child was expected after school. I viewed staffing, supervision, interactions with children, equipment, activities, daily routines, lunch/snack, diapering procedures, pet record, five records for children, four caregiver/resident records, caregiver training, posted information, emergency supplies and drill records, indoor and outdoor areas. The children were provided supervised play activities with a large selection of accessible age appropriate toys and materials. The caregivers were observed providing frequent interactions with individual children and "teachable moments" while giving explanations and information. There have been regular opportunities for outdoor play. Let me know if you have any questions. 540/430-9259

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-50-A
Description: Based on a review of posted information, and an interview with the provider, the daily attendance sheet did not include the names of all children present within thirty minutes of arrival. Evidence: There were nine children present at 9:29 AM and at 9:35 AM there were five names listed on the attendance sheet posted at the base of the stairs. According to a caregiver, all nine children were present by 8:30 AM.

Plan of Correction: The provider will use a reminder system in her phone to check on the attendance sheet by 8:00 AM and make sure the names of all children present are added within the first thirty minutes of arrival. If an assistant caregiver who is tasked with keeping up with the record of arrivals and departures is not present, the provider will make sure the names on the list are correct.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-320-B
Description: Based on observation of the indoor areas used for child care, and an interview with the provider, there was an electric outlet on the exterior wall in the dramatic play area that did not have a child-resistant protective cover. Evidence: The children were observed having play activities in the room. One of two outlets accessible above the container with dolls was visible and without the protective cap. A caregiver indicated it may have been used for a phone charger.

Plan of Correction: The provider placed a protective cap in the electric outlet. Caregivers who use electric outlets will replace the protective cover after use of the outlets. The provider will check the play areas daily to make sure there are not any accessible hazards.
