An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 12:30pm-2:30pm. Upon arrival there were 80 children present with 13 staff present. A sample of 3 staff and 3 children's records were reviewed in addition to 4 medications. Children were observed during nap.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A Description: Based on observation the center failed to ensure areas and equipment of the center, inside and outside, were maintained in a safe condition. Evidence: 1. On the playground the wooden sit-on train had areas where the wood was rough and splintered. The bolts were also rusted. 2. On the playground there was wire fencing that was not secured to anything, exposing the sharp metal edges. 3. In the infant room, Child #4 was observed sleeping in a crib with a crib sheet that did not fit snug to the mattress, posing a suffocation hazard. Two other cribs were observed with loose linens. Plan of Correction: The owner already has someone looking into remodeling the wooden train. She will make sure all areas are smooth and free of splinters. In the meantime children will not play on the equipment. The wire fencing will be removed from the playground. Infant staff will be retrained on infant care and SIDS.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B Description: Based on observation the center failed to ensure hazardous substances were kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-440-H Description: Based on observation the center failed to ensure cribs met all requirements. Evidence: In the infant room child #5 's crib had more than 1" of space between the mattress and the crib; there was about 2 inches of space. The hardware of the crib was exposed. Plan of Correction: The owner will look into why the mattress is not fitting the crib completely and will also train the infant staff on all infant standards.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-G Description: Based on observation the center failed to ensure all requirements were met when food is brought from home. Evidence: In the infant room there was an opened can of powdered baby formula that was not dated. The formula belonged to a child in care and was brought from home.
