Comments:
The following inspection took place between the hours of 9 am through 2 pm. Today, I met with the Staff of Kiddie Academy located in Leesburg, Virginia. At the start of this unannounced renewal inspection there were a total of 79 children with 14 classroom staff; good ratios in all 9 rooms. A total of 13 children?s files and 20 staff files were reviewed. The children were engaged in the following: center activities within their rooms, art, games, music, story time, learning, imaginative play, toy play, tummy time, infant feeding, diapering, hand washing, large motor activities out on the center playground, lunch, nap time, and other organized activities. If you should have any future questions, please call. Thank you. Charlie Perkins, Licensing Inspector (703) 309-3963

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-191-40-C-1-B
Description: Based on review and interview, 1 of 20 staff files reviewed indicated that a search of the central registry, and a criminal history record check was still not available for review for an agent who was involved in the day-to-day operations of the licensed center. Evidence - 1. On the date of inspection (04/13/2018), Staff #16 was without a current search of the central registry (CPS). A previous CPS check dated - 10/27/2016 was on file. However, this check was done for the previous sponsor. It is believed that a new request was sent, but the finding could not be located on the date of inspection. The central registry was contacted and informed the center that request was processed and sent out on 10/09/17. Upon further review, it appears that the return address is that of Staff #16 and not the center. 2. Staff #16 stated (during an interview conducted on the date of inspection) that she has not received this documentation at her home. 3. This same standard was previously cited for this same employee during an inspection conducted on 02/12/2018.

Plan of Correction: It is believed that another request was sent right after the inspection conducted in 02/2018, but the finding has not been returned. A follow-up with CPS shall be conducted. If this documentation remains not found, a whole new request with the center's return address shall be sent for Staff #16 shall be sent within the next 10 days. Proof that this request was sent shall be sent to our Licensing Inspector (LI). Once the results have been returned, our LI shall be contacted in order to review this documentation. The documentation shall then be placed on file at the center.

Standard #: 63.2-1720.1-B-3
Description: Based on review and interview, 1 of 20 staff files reviewed indicated that the authorized child day center did not obtain a copy of the results of a search of the central registry (CPS) maintained pursuant to ? 63.2-1515 and any child abuse and neglect registry or equivalent registry maintained by any other state in which the individual has resided in the preceding five years for any founded complaint of child abuse or neglect against him or her. Evidence - 1. On the date of inspection (04/13/2018), a Sworn Disclosure Statement (SDS) completed by Staff #5 and dated - 03/02/2018, indicated that this employee had lived in the State of North Carolina within the past 5 years. 2. A CPS check from North Carolina was not on file for Staff #5 on the date of inspection. 3. Staff #5 stated (during an interview conducted on the date of inspection) that she last lived in North Carolina in May of 2013.

Plan of Correction: A CPS request shall be sent to North Carolina for Staff #5 within the next 10 days. Proof that this request was sent shall be sent to our Licensing Inspector (LI). Once the results have been returned, our LI shall be contacted in order to review this documentation. The documentation shall then be placed on file at the center.
