Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B
Description: Based on observations and measurements taken by the licensing inspector, the center did not maintain the required depth of resilient surfacing in the fall zone areas around playground equipment. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector measured the following: 1. The depth of mulch at the end of the slide on a piece of climbing equipment located on the Toddler playground measured approximately four inches in depth. The slide/climbing equipment measured approximately three feet in height and required six inches of mulch in the fall zone areas. 2. Measurements of the mulch were taken by the four swings located on the Preschool playground. The depth of mulch located approximately six inches in front of the first swing was approximately one inch in depth. The depth of the mulch measured directly behind the first swing measured approximately two inches in depth. A required depth of nine inches was required in the fall zones areas for the swing set. During the inspection, a staff member raked additional mulch into the fall zones bringing the resilient surfacing in the fall zone areas in compliance.

Plan of Correction: Per director - This was corrected during the inspection. We will retrain staff to ensure the mulch is being redistributed to the fall zone areas.
