An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today. There were 54 children in care, with a total of 9 staff members assigned to their direct supervision. The children were observed identifying shapes, celebrating "purple day" with color art projects, making Mother's Day cards and gifts, playing color and letter recognition games, and eating lunch. The children were served chicken with cheesy brown rice, mixed vegetables, sliced oranges, and milk for lunch today. This inspection was completed between approximately 9:45 am and 12:00 pm. Thank you for meeting with me today. If you have any questions regarding this inspection please email me at

Description: Based on a review of staff records, it was determined that one staff has not resubmitted a current TB Health Screening report within the past 2 years. Evidence: The TB Health Screening for staff B expired on 7/5/15.

Plan of Correction: I will make sure she gets a new TB screening completed next week.

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 #1 does not include: the father's identifying information; the mother's work contact information. 2. Child record #4 does not include: a physical exam; documentation to show that a staff person viewed the child's original proof of ID. 3. Child record #5 does not include: each parent's work contact information.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that various areas of the center have not been maintained in a completely clean, safe, and operable condition. Evidence: 1. In the entry foyer classroom area, an adult hair straightener was observed sitting in a sink. 2. In the 3's classroom, the wood panel beneath the children's handwashing sink is rotten, chipped, and the outer covering of the wood is peeling. 3. In the 3's and 4's bathrooms, plungers were stored on the floor directly next to the children's toilet. 4. In the 4's bathroom, there is a strong urine odor. 5. On the preschool playground, there are two large holes in the rubber resilient surfacing.

Plan of Correction: 1. The hair straightener and the plungers will be moved immediately. 2. I will ask maintenance to replace the rotten wood panel and to repair the playground surfacing. 3. I will ask our cleaning crew to thoroughly deep clean the tile floor in the bathroom.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-C
Description: Based on a review of children's medications, it was determined that that one authorization form was not completed correctly. Evidence: One child's long-term emergency medication authorization form did not have a documented start and stop date for which the authorization is effective. On this form, the doctor has indicated "per symptoms" in the section that requires a start and stop date.

Plan of Correction: I will ask the parent to have the form revised by the doctor.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-520-B
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that one child's sunscreen was not stored as required and the required authorization form was not on site. Evidence: In the 2's classroom, a container of sunscreen was stored inside a child's cubby. This method of storage does not keep the item inaccessible to the children. In addition, there was no authorization form on site for the use of this sunscreen.

Plan of Correction: The parent brought the sunscreen this morning and was given the authorization form to complete. We didn't realize she had left the sunscreen in the child's cubby. The sunscreen has not been administered to the child. I will follow up with the parent to make sure the completed authorization form is returned today.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-D
Description: Based on a review of emergency drill documentation, it was determined that the center did not practice at least 2 shelter-in-place drills during the 2015 calendar year. Evidence: The center practiced only 1 shelter-in-place drill during the 2015 calendar year.

Plan of Correction: I will make sure we do at least 2 drills this year.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-I
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that one container of milk was not stored in the refrigerator after use. Evidence: In the school-age classroom a half gallon size container of chocolate milk was left out on the counter after the breakfast service. At the time of this inspection, the container was warm after sitting at room temperature for a few hours.

Plan of Correction: The milk will be discarded immediately. Staff will be reminded to return all perishable food and drink items to the refrigerator immediately after use.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-40-D-3-D
Description: Based on a review of staff background checks, it was determined that four repeat background checks have not been completed within three years since the original date of each background check. Evidence: 1. The following background checks for staff A have expired: Sworn Disclosure Statement (SDS) expired on 10/22/15; Criminal Record Check (CRC) expired on 12/7/15; Child Protective Services (CPS) registry check expired on 2/8/16. 2. The CRC for staff B expired on 2/23/15.

Plan of Correction: Each CRC and CPS background check request will be submitted this week. When staff A returns to work in the morning, I will have her sign a new SDS.


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.
