If you have any further questions regarding this inspection, please contact the inspector 703 479 4746.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-F
Complaint related: No
Description: Based on multiple interviews, staff failed to keep children under the age of 10 years of age within actual sight and sound supervision of staff at all times. Evidence: While in the summer camp/ after school classroom ( on an undetermined date) staff A and B were not aware that Child A (acting in the role of table captain) sent two children to the rest room without notifying a teacher first. Child A was over heard by Child B using sexually explicit language in the rest room area with Child C and Child D. Child B then reported the incident to staff A. Staff A confirmed that they did not see or hear the children in the rest room and when told by child B they went to check on the children and everything was OK.

Plan of Correction: Correction: During School Age Camps we will implement Junior camp and Senior Camp based on age and development level of each child for part of the day effective immediately. School Age children will continue to ask permission to use the rest room. A staff member will ensure that no more than 1 school age child is using the boy?s rest room at one time effective immediately. School age staff will keep a log of identified interactions and what was done. School age staff will document on incident reports and or classroom log book, any use of inappropriate language or actions not appropriate for that age level and notify parents effective immediately. School Age children will not have table captains, effective immediately. All staff will attend refresher training on sight and sound supervision before summer camp begins.


A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.

The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
