Comments:
An unannounced complaint inspection was done today June 24, 2016 in response to a complaint received from the local social service department. The complaint reported was that it was observed in the infant area there was one staff to more than ten infants. On the day of the inspection, upon arrival the inspector determined there was one staff to seven infants. This was over the required ratio of one staff to four infants. This observation along with interviews with staff provide evidence to warrant violations in the standards. Other violations were also cited during the inspection that were not related to the reported complaint. The violations and corrective action were discussed with the director at the exit interview. If you have any questions, please call the inspector at 540-309-2835.

Description: Based on observation the center did not have a lead teacher in each grouping of children. Evidence: 1. During the complaint inspection the inspector observed staff # 2 was in charge of the toddlers who were napping upon arrival at 1: 50 PM. It was also verified through a review of five staff files and further discussion with the director and staff # 2 & 3 that during the majority of hours the center is open there is only one staff who meets the lead teacher qualifications and she is in the infant room.

Plan of Correction: The director misunderstood the standard for staff # 3. Documentation will be obtained to verify lead teacher qualifications. Have rearranged schedules so two lead teachers are in the baby house at all times.

This first occurred at noon when the lead teacher left to go on lunch break, leaving an aide to care for the infants. Then, when the lead teacher returned at 1:30 PM, staff # 3 left for the day. This was verified through discussion with staff # 2 & 3. These staff members also verified that there was only one staff with the infants when the lead teacher left for lunch break at noon.
