An unannounced renewal inspection took place today from 9:45 am - 1 pm. There were four classes present today with 65 children and 9 direct staff. I observed children busy in a drama class and another class in the gym (soccer class) doing stretching exercises; reading, listening to a story, and playing outdoors. I also observed children busy with self-chosen Montessori materials. Staff and children's records were complete and well-organized. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A Description: During today's inspection, some areas and equipment were observed to not be maintained in a safe and operable condition. Evidence: Indoors: In the gym while children were present for soccer lessons, a laundry room closet was observed to be unlocked; and another unlocked closet led to a busy kitchen for the church building where hazardous items were observed. There was additionally a large dangling cord that stretched from an upper level to across the gym. Outdoors: There were some splintering areas observed on the wooden wall, sandbox and fence, and parts from an unused swing set accessible on the ground behind the sandbox. Plan of Correction: We will get a lock for the closets in the gym. The cord is from another floor in the church. We will ask them to pull it so it is not hanging. Wooden areas will be sanded outdoors, and the swing set will be put away or thrown away.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-A Description: Based on a review of medications today, one child's paperwork to authorize the medication was found to not be complete. Evidence: Two long-term medications were present for Child # 1 that did not have an authorization signed by parent and physician as required. Child # 1 additionally had a long-term asthma medication with an authorization date that expired 2/14/18 . Plan of Correction: We will talk to the parent today.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-J Description: Based on observation and staff confirmation during today's inspection, one child's medications were stored in an area that was not locked. Evidence: Medications for Child # 1 were observed to be stored today in a sealable plastic bag (that did not lock ) inside one classroom's first aid backpack. Plan of Correction: We were using special locked plastic child-proof bags this summer. We have canvas lock bags and will begin to use these for children's medications.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-540-B Description: Based on observation while on the playground today, first aid kits were easily accessible to both the staff and children. Evidence: Two class backpacks with first aid supplies were observed to be hanging on the fence inside the playground at child height, and one first aid kit was on the ground while children were playing on the playground. Plan of Correction: The plastic first aid kit is usually in the closet in the bathroom. The backpacks with first aid supplies will be kept in a way so they are not accessible to the children.
