Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today. The provider and two assistant caregivers were caring for 10 children, totaling 27 points. The children were observed listening to music, reading stories, playing with toys, and enjoying a Spanish lesson. The children were to be served macaroni and cheese, apples, and milk for lunch today. This inspection was completed between approximately 9:30 am and 10:45 am. Thank you for meeting with me today. If you have any questions regarding this inspection please email me at sandra.dimperio@dss.virginia.gov

Description: Based on a review of children's records, it was determined that one record was not complete. Evidence: Child record #2 does not include documentation to show that the provider viewed the child's original proof of identification.

Plan of Correction: I saw the child's birth certificate when the parents enrolled, but I forgot to document it. I will update the documentation.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-290
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that various sharp kitchen items were not stored in a manner to keep them inaccessible to the children.
