Technical Assistance:
We discussed the requirements for ensuring sight and sound supervision. The risk assessment for a violation was provided. We talked about the need to replace the walkie-talkies for the facilitation of staff communication. Staff who take children outdoors need to communicate about their departure with the staff remaining inside i.e. in the homework area and storage room. As a reminder, a fire inspection will be needed in September.

Comments:
Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced monitoring inspection conducted from 3:35 PM to 6;35 PM. Today, there were twenty-eight children with three to five staff. I viewed program activities, staffing, supervision, interactions with children, snack menu, daily routines, posted information, agency reports, emergency supplies and drill records, four records for children, five staff training records. The children enjoyed active outdoor play activities and an indoor art project. Homework assistance was provided while the use of positive guidance and consistent expectations by the teacher were observed. Parents were greeted and appropriate communication was provided by the staff during pick-up. There were issues with the use of the door bell which staff will need to monitor. Let me know if you have any questions. 540/430-9259

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-F
Description: Based on observation of the afternoon activities, daily routines and interviews with staff, there was a six year old child who returned to the cafeteria from the homework area and was not within actual sight and sound supervision in the cafeteria. Evidence: The licensing inspector was at the front table of the cafeteria at 4:10 PM when the homework teacher was heard and not seen in the back hallway as a child, age six, was seen entering from the back hall door. The child walked toward the front of the cafeteria and sat at the next table near the licensing inspector. When questioned, the child indicated he was sent there. There was a group of seventeen children was outside on the side playground with two staff. After about two minutes, the inspector walked to the back hall door area and saw two staff exiting the storage room. They were told about the child in the cafeteria and a staff person took him to the outdoor playground. Six children had remained with the homework teacher.

Plan of Correction: The administrative staff will discuss the communication needs between the homework teacher and all other program staff. The staff will inform the staff remaining in the building when they take children to the playground. The homework teacher will let staff in the building know when she is ready to send children to join the other group of children. Administrative staff will replace the walkie-talkies previously used at this program. The staff will make sure walkie-talkies are used by staff located in different areas of the facility so that they can communicate the transition needs of individual children and make sure the children are always within sight and sound of staff.
