Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A Description: Based on a review of children's records, it was determined that one record was not complete. Evidence: Child record #4 does not include: a second emergency contact person; documentation that the parent has reviewed the child's contact information within the past year. Plan of Correction: We are in the process of distributing re-enrollment forms this week for all families.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A Description: Based on a review of staff records, it was determined that two were not complete. Evidence: 1. Staff record #2 does not include: emergency contact information; documentation that the staff person possesses the qualifications necessary to be employed in his role of Lead Teacher. 2. Staff record #5 does not include documentation that the staff person possesses the qualifications necessary to be employed in her role of Lead Teacher.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-80-A Description: Based on staff interviews, it was determined that one class was not fully aware of the number of children in their care. Evidence: In the 3/4 classroom, the written attendance was correct but the staff in the classroom were unable to tell the Inspector the correct number of children in their care. There were 20 children in their care, but it was reported to the Inspector that 21 children were in care. Staff members were not aware of the correct number of children in their care until the Inspector conducted a head count. Plan of Correction: All staff will be reminded of the importance of always knowing exactly how many children are in their care.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-290-3 Description: Based on observations, it was determined that two electrical outlets were not covered. Evidence: Two outlets on the upper portion of the wall in the children's hallway bathroom were not covered. Plan of Correction: The outlets will be covered today.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B Description: Based on observations, it was determined that there is not an adequate level of resilient surfacing on the playground. Evidence: On the school-age playground, much of the mulch has worn away to a base level of sand and dirt. There is no longer an adequate level of resilient surfacing in each fall zone area. Plan of Correction: I will request additional mulch.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-C Description: Based on a review of children's medications, it was determined that one child's medication bottle is empty. Evidence: One child's non-prescription medication bottle is empty. There is no medication in this bottle, therefore if it were needed, staff would not be able to administer the medication per the label instructions. Plan of Correction: The parent will be asked to bring a new medication bottle if it is still needed.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-B Description: Based on a review of the emergency preparedness plan, it was determined that this plan has not been updated as required.
