Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 10:30am through 1pm. There were 13 children in care with three staff. Children present ranged in age from 17months through five years old. Children and staff records were reviewed. Children were observed in teacher and self-directed activities including play, restroom routines, lunch and transitions. Violations were observed in meal service and background checks and appear on the violation notice.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-F
Description: Based on observation and interview the center failed to ensure that when meals are served the center will follow the most recent age-appropriate nutritional requirements of a recognized authority such as the USDA. Evidence: 1 ? The meal served to the children in care does not meet the USDA requirements as a half cup of box macaroni (mac) and cheese was served to each child in the toddler group. Children present in this group ranged in age from 17 months through 3 years. a. The box of mac and cheese states that there are 8 grams of protein in each 1 cup serving of the product. b.

Evidence: 1 - Staff 3 was observed alone caring for children ages 3 to 5 years old throughout the inspection. a. The record for staff 3 contains a criminal history background check dated 1/30/15.
