Comments:
An unannounced renewal inspection was initiated today at 2:15pm. The physical plant, 5 staff files, 5 children's files, annual fire and health inspection, staff training, child nutrition, children's activities, medications, emergency procedures, drills and supplies were inspected today. There were 37 children under the supervision of 6 staff. During the inspection, children were observed being fed (infants), listening to a book on tape, waking up from naptime, cleaning up for and eating afternoon snack (yogurt and rice krispies). For lunch, the children were served tuna noodle casserole, carrots, oranges and milk. The interactions between the children and staff were seen to be positive and constructive in nature. There are currently 5 staff certified in MAT (medication administration training). Should you have any questions, please contact me at mary.wizbicki@dss.virginia.gov.
