The Inspector offered suggestions for improvement in the overall cleanliness of the center.
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today. There were 46 children in care, with a total of 10 staff members assigned to their direct supervision. The children were observed playing outside, listening to stories, creating theme-based artwork, eating lunch, and taking their afternoon nap. The children were served cheese pizza, pineapple, broccoli, and milk for lunch today. This inspection was completed between approximately 11:00 am and 1:20 pm. Thank you for meeting with me today.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-160-A Description: Based on a review of staff records, it was determined that one record is not complete. Evidence: Staff record C does not include documentation of a completed TB Health Screening. Plan of Correction: She obtained her TB test last week. I will remind her to supply the documentation for her file.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A Description: Based on observations, it was determined that several areas of the school have not been maintained in a clean, safe, and operable condition. Evidence: 1. In the Toddler classroom the following physical plant violations were found: a dirty/stained sink and faucet at the diaper changing station; the diaper changing cabinet lock is broken; the handwashing cabinet lock is broken; the track at the bottom of the floor level cabinet sliding doors are very dirty; the floor level section of both cabinets is very dirty. 2. In the 4's classroom the following physical plant violations were found: the wood panel beneath the children's handwashing sink is broken, cracked, and has separated from the wall; the storage closet is overly full causing it to be a possible fire hazard. 3. In the 3's classroom the following physical plant violations were found: the children's couch is very stained and a section of the padding/covering has ripped off leaving wood and staples exposed; the wood around the storage closet handle has deteriorated and separated from the handle causing it to be a pinch hazard for the children; the hallway storage closet is overly full causing it to be a possible fire hazard. 4. In the 2's classroom the following physical plant violations were found: the wood covering at the children's handwashing sink is broken and has separated from the sink; a dirty dustpan, sweeper, and small mop were stored on the floor inside the children's bathroom; the tank lid on the children's toilet has broken in half leaving a section of sharp porcelain exposed to the children. 5. In the school-age classroom the following physical plant violations were found: there are crumbs, pieces of cereal, dirt, and broken classroom materials scattered on the floor throughout the classroom; there is a hole in the closet door. 6. In the Infant classroom the following physical plant violations were found: there is a hole in the middle of one child's crib sheet; when opening a cabinet drawer the knob fell off into the Inspector's hand; the fabric covering the teacher's rocking chair is stained. 7. On the preschool playground the following physical plant violation was found: a very dirty classroom trash can was placed on the playground in the children's play area. 8. On the toddler playground the following physical plant violations were found: a section of the classroom window screen has bent away from the window and was protruding into the play area at the children's level; a second window screen with a sharp broken section was found lying on the ground in the children's play area. Plan of Correction: During the inspection I submitted a work order to have the toilet tank lid repaired immediately. Both screens were removed from the playground and will be repaired. I have repaired the broken drawer knob in the Infant room. The dirty playground trash can was disposed of. All broken cabinet issues have already been reported to maintenance and we are in the process of collecting bids to have the sinks and cabinets replaced. I have already revised the cleaning schedule and staff expectations to ensure that the center is clean at all times. I will continue to monitor all classrooms and playground areas to make sure all areas are clean at all times. The storage closets will be emptied today.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-F Description: Based on interviews, it was determined that two children were temporarily reassigned to a different classroom other than than the age-appropriate classroom to which they are assigned. Evidence: Two older infants (age 13 months and 14 months) were reassigned from the infant classroom to the toddler classroom today. It was reported to the Inspector that these children have been routinely reassigned this week due to the fact that a very young infant (6 weeks) is now in care in the infant classroom. However, these older infants do not meet the age requirement of 16 months to enter the toddler classroom, and these infants rotate between the two classrooms depending on whether it is programming time or nap time. Plan of Correction: The two oldest infants were sent to the toddler room in order to better provide a safe care space for the young infant and to better provide more interesting and age-appropriate programming for the older infants. We are in the process of preparing a classroom space to be used for older infants who are transitioning between the infant classroom and toddler classroom. Until that new classroom space is ready for use, we will keep all infants in the infant classroom and ensure that age-appropriate programming takes place daily.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-A Description: Based on a review of children's medications, it was determined that one medication was on site without a current authorization form. Evidence: One child's prescription medication was on site without a current medication authorization form. The authorization had expired on 11/1/16. Plan of Correction: During the inspection the parent was called and reminded to bring the new authorization form.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-G Description: Based on observations, it was determined that one bottle of unused infant formula was not disposed of by the end of the day. Evidence: One child's full bottle of infant formula was dated for yesterday 11/8/16. This bottle was stored inside the infant refrigerator. Although the child was not present during this inspection, the bottle of unused formula was not disposed of at the end of the day yesterday. Plan of Correction: The formula was disposed of during the inspection. All staff will be reminded to empty any unused bottles at the end of each day.
