An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today. There were 54 children in care, with a total of 11 staff members assigned to their direct supervision. The children were observed actively engaged in a variety of activities, including: feeding the birds, playing on the playground, making dinosaur and animal shaped cookies, attending phonics class, practicing their counting skills, creating Fall art projects, and eating lunch. The children were served sweet and sour chicken, rice pilaf, mixed vegetables, and milk for lunch today. This inspection was completed between approximately 10:15 am and 12:20 pm. Thank you for meeting with me today. If you have any questions regarding this inspection please email me at

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Description: Based on a review of children's records, it was determined that three records were not complete. Evidence: 1. Child record #3 does not include each parent's work phone number. 2. Child record #4 does not include the child's physical exam report. 3. Child record #5 does not include each parent's work phone number.

Plan of Correction: Each parent has already been asked for the missing information. I will remind the parents to provide all missing information.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-240-A
Description: Based on a review of staff training documentation, it was determined that one staff record does not include all required orientation training documentation. Evidence: Staff record #1 does not include documentation to show that the staff person completed "First Day Orientation" training.

Plan of Correction: She was just recently transferred to this center. I will conduct the orientation training with her and put the documentation in the file.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that one area of the center has not been maintained in a clean, safe, and operable condition. Evidence: In the 2's bathroom, the following were found: 1. There is a section of heavy rust at the bottom of the door frame. 2. Some of the wood on the back of the door has deteriorated and is peeling off.

Plan of Correction: I will put in a work order for maintenance to repair these issues in the 2's bathroom.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that two cleaning products were not locked. Evidence: In the Toddler classroom, the locking mechanism on the diaper changing table cabinet is broken. Two spray bottles of cleaning solution are stored inside this cabinet, which is at ground level. Because the locking mechanism is broken, the cleaning products are not locked.

Plan of Correction: I have already put in a work order for maintenance to replace the lock. I will follow up to make sure the lock is replaced quickly.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-A
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that the resilient surfacing on the preschool/school age classroom is no longer protecting children from hazards. Evidence: On the preschool/school age playground, the edges of the rubber resilient surfacing have separated from the ground and are protruding upward into the area where children run and play. This poses a tripping hazard for the children. There is also a divot in a section of the rubber surfacing. This poses a safety and tripping hazard for the children.

Plan of Correction: Maintenance has already attempted to repair the peeling sections and the divot in the surfacing. I will put in a work order to have it repaired again. I have also already asked for the resilient surfacing to be replaced.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-370-5
Description: Based on staff interviews and a review of infant daily activity sheets, it was determined that there is no documentation to show that two young infants have received at least 30 minutes of "tummy time" each day. Evidence: The daily report for two infants in care on 10/13/15 and 10/14/15 indicated that each of these young infants received a total of only 20 minutes of "tummy time."

Plan of Correction: All young infants always receive at least 30 minutes of tummy time each day. Often they get more than 30 minutes each day. I will remind staff to ensure that all tummy time is documented correctly each day.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-520-C
Description: Based on a review of children's diaper ointment authorization forms, it was determined that two of these forms have expired. Evidence: In the 2's classroom, two of the children's diaper ointment authorization forms have expired. One expired on 6/30/15; the second expired on 9/30/15.

Plan of Correction: The parents will be asked to complete a new authorization form.
