An unannounced renewal study was conducted today with the director. Sixty seven children were present with 9 teachers providing supervision during the initial walkthrough. The schoolagers were waiting for lunch to be served, which consisted of beef ravioli, mixed vegetables, peaches and milk. The preschoolers were on their cots napping during the walkthrough while some of the babies were awake and engaged in a variety of activities. The playground was inspected today as well as medications for 7 children. Seven staff files and five children's files were reviewed today as well. Arrival time: 12:30 p.m. Departure time: 4 p.m.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-80-A Description: Based on observation and interviews it was determined that attendance was not maintained in each classroom to accurately reflect the children present at any given time. Evidence: Eighteen children were identified as present on the attendance log in the schoolage classroom when 16 children were present. Seven children were identified as present on the attendance in the infant room when 6 children were present. Plan of Correction: The attendance was corrected during the inspection and I will remind all staff about keeping accurate attendance
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B Description: Based on an inspection of the two playgrounds, it was determined that six inches of resilient surfacing was not maintained surrounding the play equipment. Evidence: On the older playground the mulch was compacted and degraded and not resilient surrounding the merry- go -round and the 5 seat circular tricycle track. On the younger playground the mulch was compacted and degraded and not resilient at the end of the orange and green portable slides. Plan of Correction: We will place this equipment off limits today and we will rake the mulch and if its has started to degrade and it no longer resilient we will replace the mulch.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-370-3 Description: Based on interviews, it was determined that infants are not receiving daily outside time regardless of weather and air quality. Evidence: Interviews revealed that infants are not receiving outside time regardless of the weather or air quality. Plan of Correction: We will make sure they will get outside time.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-C Description: Based on a review of medications for seven children and an interview with the director, it was determined that the authorization for one child's medication had not been renewed. Evidence: Child A's parental and physician authorization for the Epipen was in effect from 12/12/16 to June 2017. The authorization had not been renewed. Plan of Correction: I have left a message with the parents to renew the authorization form.

In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights.
