Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on observation, the center did not have all hazardous substances such as cleaning materials in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: There was an unlocked under the sink cabinet located in the pre-k classroom that had a bag of Voban Aromatic Absorbent, box of Borax, and spray bottle of glass surface cleaner which was accessible to children.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-E-5
Description: Based on observation, review of written attendance, and staff interview, the center did not maintain one staff member for every 18 children for children from the age of eligibility to attend public school through eight years old. Evidence: On May 29, 2019, at approximately 1:30 PM, the licensing inspector observed 41 school aged children in the care of two staff members.

Plan of Correction: The center had three staff members scheduled to be in the school age classroom to be in compliance with the staff-to-child ratio.

The school age room was out of ratio compliance for about 10 minutes.

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.
