On-site to conduct an inspection regarding an allegation that was received at our office on 2/2/2018 regarding a staff member's handling of a child. Investigation took place between the hours of 2:00 pm and 5:35 pm. Based on the preponderance of evidence gathered from staff interviews, the center's video recordings and written documentation, the allegation is not valid however other violations were cited during this investigation. The findings from today's visit can be found on the Violation Notice. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at whitney.mcgrath@dss.virginia.gov.

Description: Based on review and observation of center's video recording, one staff member failed to provide comfort as needed.

Child #1 was crying at the time of drop off and continued to cry after their parent left the classroom. Staff #1 placed Child #1 on the carpet and proceeded to conduct a daily health check on another child in the classroom while Child #1 continued to cry. Staff #1 was observed shushing Child #1 from several feet away while the child cried uncontrollably for 6 minutes. Staff #1 did not attempt to soothe or comfort Child #1.
