Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A Description: Based on observation of the outside, the center has failed to maintain a play area in a safe condition. Evidence: 1. Playground used by the children, has paper tarp that is pulled up from the mulch and has created a tripping hazard. Plan of Correction: We have ordered mulch and are keeping kids off the playground until it is fixed.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B Description: Based on observation, the center has failed to provide resilient surfacing under equipment with moving parts or climbing apparatus to create a fall zone free of hazardous obstacles. Fall zones are defined as the area underneath and surrounding equipment that requires a resilient surface. Evidence: 1. The playground was checked and the inspector saw a climbing structure with a slide located on top of the grass and 4 feet from the fence. The climbing structure requires surfacing. Plan of Correction: We will make sure the climbing structure is moved onto the resilient surfacing.
