Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A Description: Based on observation, the center did not ensure all areas were kept in a safe and operable condition. Evidence: During an inspection of the Toddler playground, the licensing inspector observed an approximate four foot by four foot square wooded box located in the middle of the playground. The wooden box had peeling paint and the wood was rotting and the corners were splintered creating a hazard that could entangle clothing or snag skin. The staff members from the Toddler and Twos classrooms stated the children have been using the Toddler playground. Plan of Correction: Per owner - We will not allow the children back on the Toddler program until the playground is fixed.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-G Description: Based on observation and interview, one spray bottle did not indicate its contents in one of six classrooms inspected. Evidence: During an inspection of the Toddler's classroom, the licensing inspector observed a spray bottle containing a clear liquid located in a locked cabinet. The spray bottle was not labeled in a way that indicated its contents. A staff member in the Toddler's classroom stated the spray bottle contained bleach water and the bottle was new. Plan of Correction: Per owner - We will label the spray bottle today.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B Description: Based on observation and measurements, the center did not maintain the required depth of resilient surfacing in all fall zone areas. Evidence: During an inspection of the playgrounds, the licensing inspector observed the following: 1. The mulch at the end of the blue little tykes slide (approximately two and a half feet tall) located on the Toddler playground measured three inches in depth. 2. The green slide (approximately two feet tall) located on the Toddler playground was sitting on a dirt surface. 3. The swings located on the Toddler playground were located over a dirt surface. 4. The pea gravel at the end of the pink Fisher and Price slide (approximately three feet tall) located on the Preschool measured approximately four inches in depth. Per owner - We will not allow the children back on the Toddler program until the playground is fixed. Plan of Correction: Per owner - the children will not be allowed to use the Toddler playground until additional mulch is added. The pea gravel on the Preschool playground will be redistributed to ensure there is an adequate amount at the end of the slide.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-B Description: Based on observation, the center did not ensure the diaper changing surface was non-absorbent. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed a diaper changing pad with tears in it located on the diaper changing table in the Infant room. Plan of Correction: Per owner - I will buy a new diaper changing pad today to replace the torn one.
