Classrooms were found to be clean and sufficiently supplied with toys and equipment for the children. The outdoor playground was not inspected due to snow cover.

Evidence: Child #3 - First date of attendance was in November 2014, and the 30-day grace period has expired.

To ensure compliance CD is currently re-auditing all children's files for completion and will collect all mandated paperwork from families before enrollment.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B Description: Based on observations made, it was determined that hazardous substances were not kept in a locked place. Evidence: A container of Borax was found to be on an open shelf in the main hallway; a spray air freshener product was in an unlocked low level cabinet in the Toddler room; and another spray air freshener product was found to be on a diaper changing table in the 2's room. Plan of Correction: All hazardous substances were immediately locked and out of reach of children. To ensure compliance all staff have been instructed in the importance of keeping hazardous items locked and out of reach of children at all times.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-440-E Description: Based on observations made, it was determined that there was not at least 12 inches of space between occupied cots. Evidence: 5 of 17 cots were space in a manner that allowed less than 12 inches of space between them in the 3-4's group. Plan of Correction: CD has instructed classroom to make sure to move furniture if necessary during naptime to accommodate all cots and maintain the mandated distance of 12 inches. A cot chart with room arrangement has been posted to ensure compliance.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-450-A Description: Based on observations made, it was determined that 1 of 7 cots in the 2's room did not have a bottom sheet/linen. Evidence: A child was observed napping directly on the mesh cot surface. Plan of Correction: CD replaced the sheet in the two's classroom. To ensure compliance the CD has instructed staff...as part of the naptime routine...to ensure every cot has a sheet. After conferring with the management team it was decided that the AD will ensure all children have sheets assigned to them and replace any that are in need of new ones.

Evidence: An over-the-counter medication on-site belonging to Child #4 had expired in October 2014. Plan of Correction: Center Director sent the expired medication home the same day as the licensing visit. To ensure compliance a spreadsheet was developed to ensure staff, who are MAT certified and dispensing medication, are aware when medications will expire. MAT certified Staff have been retrained on the importance of checking expired medications and have been trained on the spreadsheet. The form is located in the medication binder.
