An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on 09/14/2015 from 10:20am - 12:10pm. During the inspection there were 54 children ages two to five years old in care with 12 staff. A tour of the facility was conducted and children were observed in a variety of activities in the classrooms, playing outside, and eating lunch. Records were reviewed for five children and three staff. Medication, emergency procedures, and emergency supplies were reviewed. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice, and were discussed during the exit interview. Please complete the ?plan of correction? and ?date to be corrected? for each violation cited on the violation notice and return it to me within 10 calendar days from today. You will need to specify how the deficient practice will be or has been corrected. Just writing the word ?corrected? is not acceptable. Your plan of correction must contain: 1) steps to correct the noncompliance with the standard(s), 2) measures to prevent the noncompliance from occurring again; and 3) person(s) responsible for implementing each step and/or monitoring any preventive measure(s)

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation, it was determined that the facility did not ensure that all areas and equipment inside and out side are maintained in a safe condition. Evidence: 1. The door to the kitchen area in the Preschool hallway was open and not locked. The drawer to the l;eft of the sink did not have any type of safety lock and contained 12 knives, a pizza cutter and a fruit peeler. All of these items had sharp edges which could injure a child. 2. Staff #4 (Program Director) confirmed that the kitchen door was open and the drawer would be accessible to the children.

Plan of Correction: On the day of the inspection, the kitchen door was locked, but open because teachers were using the kitchen. A child proof lock was installed on the drawer by maintenance staff.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-D
Description: Based on a review of the emergency drill logs, it was determined that the facility did not ensure that a minimum of two shelter-in-place practice drills per year for the most likely to occur scenarios were completed. Evidence: 1. A review of the the emergency drill log for the 2014-2015 school year did not show documentation of a second shelter-in-place drill being completed. 2. Staff #4 (Program Director) confirmed that a second shelter-in-place drill had not been completed.

Plan of Correction: The Pre-K Director informed the Director of Risk management about the need for another shelter-in-place drill. The drills have now all been scheduled.

A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.

The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
