Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted with new center director and center staff. There were 120 children present, ranging in age from infant through school age. The children were engaged in a variety of activities including outdoor play, pool play, free play activities, lunch, and preparing for nap time. Lunches are brought in from home. Please call to schedule the annual fire inspection and the annual health inspection, as both are overdue. Four staff files were reviewed - please see Supplemental Summary for missing items. Three emergency medications for three children were reviewed and are in compliance. Three staff are currently certified in Medication Administration Training. Please resume evacuation and shelter in place drills this month. Time of today's inspection: 11:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Please call me if you have any questions at 540-219-4122 or e-mail tara.barton@dss.virginia.gov.
