Standard #: 22VAC40-185-240-C
Description: Based on review of staff records and verification from the director, one staff member had not obtained the required sixteen hours of annual training. Evidence: There were nine staff members' records reviewed during the visit on 11/07/2014. 1. It was determined that Staff Member # 8 did not complete 16 hours of annual training. Documentation showed and the program director verified that Staff Member # 8 had obtained 11 hours of annual training from November 1, 2013 to October 31, 2014.

Plan of Correction: Staff Member # 8 will complete the remaining five hours of annual training needed for 2013-14 and then will obtain the required 16 hours of training needed for 2014-15. Administration will periodically review all records throughout the year to ensure the staff is obtaining and documenting all training which is needed.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B
Description: Based on observation and discussion with the director, it was determined that four pieces of play equipment did not have a six foot fall zone free of hazardous obstacles surrounding each piece of equipment. Evidence: The playground was observed and resilient surfacing was measured during the inspection on 11/07/2014. 1. A plastic free standing play structure had been placed under the the swing bay (no swings were in place) of the permanent wooden structure. The fall zone on two sides of the plastic structure and on one side of the wooden structure were between one and two feet on each side, thus presenting a possible hazard in the event of a child falling from either piece of equipment. 2. There were two other free standing plastic play structures that had been placed on the mulched playground. One was a small plastic slide that was located about a foot from the wooden playground border and one was a large climbing structure that was within approximately three feet of the wooden border, thus preventing either structure from having the required fall zone.

Plan of Correction: The administration will remove the three plastic play structures from the playground before the children have access to it. In the future, they will ensure that there is at least a six feet of unobstructed resilient surfacing surrounding all pieces of equipment.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-450-D
Description: Based on observation and discussion with staff, two children had pillows during nap time that were not covered with pillow cases. Evidence: Nap time was observed during the visit on 11/07/2014. 1. There were two children in Classroom # 2 that had brought in their personal pillows from home. Neither pillow was covered with a pillow case. 2. Staff Member # 6 verified that the pillows were not covered with linens.

Plan of Correction: The administration was aware that pillow cases were required for all pillows brought from home. Staff will be trained to check daily to ensure all pillows are covered and if a parent did not send in a pillow case, the pillow will not be used.
