Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-C Complaint related: Yes Description: Based on the inspector's interviews, the center failed to ensure the ratio applied to the youngest child in care on the morning of 12/5/16. Evidence: The inspector interviewed three staff members regarding a complaint of a classroom having more than ten children with one staff member and the youngest child being of infant age the morning of 12/5/16. A staff member did confirm they had more than ten children by themselves for what was described as a "brief" period of time and the children ranged in age of under twelve months through three years of age. The ratio applied to the youngest child in care and requires one staff member for every four children. Plan of Correction: Staff reported there were a high number of staff that had called out due to a stomach virus and additional staff were called in immediately. The PD will remind staff to let her know as soon as possible if they are not going to be able to make it in. This was not usual for the center.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
