Comments:
A combined unannounced monitoring inspection and complain investigation was conducted on 12/22/2015, between 9:15am and 11:30am, and 12/28/2015, between 11:00 am and 11:45am. Based on staff and classroom observation and multiple interviews the preponderance of evidence does not support the complaint regarding 22 VAC 40-185-340 : Supervision. The complaint is deemed not valid. During the monitoring inspection violations unrelated to the complaint were observed. On December 22nd there were 35 children in the direct care of 12 staff members. Children were observed playing at a water table, singing, dancing, having pretend play, and cleaning. Staff records, children's records, evacuation drills, the physical space, supervision, and ratios were observed and inspected.
