Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-F Description: Based on interviews with staff members, parent interviews, documentation of interviews with children, and observation of and photos taken of the indoor play structure, the center failed to ensure that children under the age of 10 were always within actual sight and sound supervision. Evidence: 1. On March 28, 2016, male and female children under the age of 10 were playing at the center in the ?Big Room? inside of and on a large-sized free-standing indoor play structure which in some areas contained enclosed opaque colored tubes (yellow, red, etc.). 2. Observation and photos of the tubes demonstrated that the enclosed opaque colored tubes failed to allow direct sight and sound supervision of children when the children were in the colored tubes. 3. At approximately 4:15 p.m., Staff A stated that Child A (age 7), came down the slide from the enclosed play structure followed seconds later by children B (age 7), C (age7), and D (age 7). Child A told Staff A that another child had inappropriately touched her (Child A). 4. On March 28, 2016, children B, C and D each reported to the program director that Child A was inappropriately touched. Plan of Correction: When management became aware of this matter, the Big Room indoor play structure equipment was closed for use in the Afterschool Program until the incident could be fully investigated. During the review process statements were gathered from counselors and children. The indoor play structure equipment was evaluated by the management team for compliance with Sight and Sound licensing standards. The team also reviewed current Afterschool program policies and procedures as related to Sight and Sound Supervision. The management team was comprised of the Program Director, Manager of Licensure and Administration, General Manager, and the Vice President of Company operations. After reviewing the collected data, the management team concluded that due to the opaque color of the current indoor play structure tubes the best course of action to ensure future compliance would be replacement of the indoor play structure equipment. Until a new structure is in place, the current indoor play structure will remain closed during the Afterschool program hours of operation. The management team will ensure that the newly purchased equipment meets all standards as related to sight and sound supervision. Prior to the installation of the new equipment updated policies and procedures for supervision as related to the new equipment will be implemented to ensure compliance with Sight and Sound standards.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
