An unannounced monitoring inspection was initiated today at 2:00pm. 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 97 children under the supervision of 14 staff. During the inspection, children were observed eating afternoon snack (string cheese and crackers), having a diaper change (infant), listening to storytime, enjoying free play, reading books and resting during naptime. For lunch, the children were served pot roast with rice and peas, honeydew melon and milk. The interactions between the children and staff were seen to be positive and constructive in nature.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-E-4
Description: Based on observations, there were children in a classroom who were not within the required staff to children ratio. Evidence 1. Upon entering the Pre-K classroom at 2:41pm, there were 18 children under the supervision of 1 teacher. This was during the scheduled nap time. However, 15 of the 18 children were awake and interacting with others. When this was brought to the teacher's attention, she called the front office to ask for another staff member to come to the room. At 2:43pm, another staff came to the room which put the class back within the 1:10 ratio.

Plan of Correction: The administrators will remind the teachers that when the children are awake, they must comply with the standard ratio.

A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.

The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. 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. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
