Comments:
An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today from 11:00 am - 1:30 pm. There were 50 children present in 5 classrooms. All rooms were within ratio. I observed children busy on the playground, engaged in circle time, listening to a story, playing with manipulative toys, eating lunch and transitioning to naptime. If you have any questions, please contact me at brenda.kuhlman@dss.virginia.gov

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A
Description: Based on a review of staff records today, some required information was not available in one record. Evidence: Of four records reviewed today, Staff # 1, hired 3/31/17, had no verification of age requirement (18) or name, address and phone of a person to be notified in an emergency.

Plan of Correction: When the staff member gets here, she will bring her school identification in and emergency contacts.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: During today's inspection, some areas of the center were found to not be maintained in a clean, safe and operable condition. Evidence: Indoors: At the bottom on diaper tables in two classrooms, there were torn areas observed with sharp plastic edging, and one area had sealant coming off at child height. In the two's class, there was chipping paint observed at child height and missing moulding. In several rooms, vents were grimy. The side of the sink in the school age room near the kitchen was badly cracked. Outdoors: A tricycle was observed missing a handlebar cover, leaving the area as a finger entrapment hazard. One trike was missing a pedal. On the brick wall, an electrical outlet had a gap/ opening above it. The space between the wall and the metal gate had an area of approximately 4-5 inches where a small child could squeeze through. The resilient surfacing on the older children's playground was observed to be cracked in several areas, especially below the slide chute, creating a tripping hazard. The school bus (#2) was observed to have a broken area next to the tail light where hole was exposed with a sharp edging, accessible at child height.

Plan of Correction: I will submit these to Kindercare facilities under the header of licensing violations. The trikes were removed until repaired. Vents will be cleaned. The loose caulking will be covered. The side of the sink will be taped.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B
Description: During today's inspection, two portable slides were in use outdoors without any resilient surface under and in fall zones. Evidence: Two plastic slides in use today were on top of areas of bare soil surfacing.

Plan of Correction: For now, they will be moved to resilient surface.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A
Description: When staff were supervising children in one room today, children were not always ensured care and protection. Evidence: Two items observed in the children's cubby area did not ensure the safety of children. Two children in care were reported to have brought from home items inappropriate for a two year old room, and staff put them in cubbies where they were visible. One item was a netted bag labeled "designer marbles"-approximately 25 flat green and white glass decorative objects that looked like candy. The label on the bag said "Keep out of reach of children under age five." The second item was an opened container of a hazlenut-based spread.

Plan of Correction: Items were removed. Followed up with staff and parents on appropriateness.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-A
Description: During a review of medications today, one child's medication authorization was found to be outdated. Evidence: Child #3 had an "as needed" prescription medication on site but the physician's authorization ended 12/31/16, and the parent authorization ended 4/17/17.

Plan of Correction: Have already printed out new forms to give to parent.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-N
Description: Based on a review of children's medications today, one medication was present 14 days after no longer being used. Evidence: The over the counter medication for Child # 2 was given to the center with an authorization for a week that began 3/28, and the medication is still present today.

Plan of Correction: Will be returned today.
