Standard #: 22VAC40-185-140-A

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: During today's inspection, some areas of the center were observed to not be maintained in a safe and operable condition. Evidence: Outdoors: A heavy metal window screen was observed to be detached from a window, making sharp edges accessible. A broken table was near the basketball area, with broken areas in the surface. The outdoor storage closet had a door that was open and could not close. A mat was torn at the edge, posing a tripping hazard. A garden hose was accessible at child height. A metal brace was protruding from a gate, posing a scratching hazard. Indoors: Moulding at the bottom of the school-aged sink and children's sink near the kitchen was coming apart at foot level, posing a tripping hazard. There was badly peeling paint on the door of the pre-K room. A children's couch was badly torn.

Plan of Correction: Outdoors: An emergency work order will be put in for the window screen and the open closet. The table and mat will be thrown away. The hose was put away during the inspection. Indoors: A work order was put in for the sink. The door will be painted but will be covered with pictures to block the peeling paint until it is painted. The children's couch will be replaced.

Description: During today's inspection, hazardous substances such as cleaning materials were observed not to be kept locked as required. Evidence: In the pre-K room, the laundry room was unlocked where cleaning chemicals are mixed and stored. The door was unlocked. Later, a table was observed to be placed in front of the door. In the same classroom, spray bottles of cleaning materials were observed in an unlocked cabinet above the sink.

Plan of Correction: The key to the laundry room is missing, so we blocked it with a table today. An emergency work order will be put in. Staff will be reminded to keep all cleaners locked in all cabinets when they are not being used.
