Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted with center owner and center director. There were 22 children present with five staff actively supervising. The children were having rest time, having afternoon snack, and having free play with age appropriate toys. Two staff files were reviewed - please see Supplemental Summary for missing items. There are no children receiving medication at day care today. The last fire inspection was conducted 5/14/2016. The last health inspection was conducted 10/31/2016. The playground was only briefly scanned due to inclement weather. Please call me if you have any questions 540-219-4122 or e-mail tara.barton@dss.virginia.gov. Time of today's inspection: 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-60-C-2
Description: Repeat violation: Based on review of two new staff files, the facility failed to have a completed search of the central registry finding (CPS check) for all staff within 30 days of employment. Evidence: Staff A (date of hire 10/21/2016 ) did not have documentation of a completed search of the central registry on file. The CPS check had been date stamped by VDSS on 11/7/2016 and was returned to the center for employee to complete. The CPS check wasn't received by VDSS until early December 2016 and has not been completed and returned yet.

Plan of Correction: Center owner called VDSS to check on the status of the CPS check and was told it would be completed by this Friday, January 20, 2017. The employee will not return to work until the CPS check is received.
