Licensing Inspectors arrived at 9:55am to complete an initial inspection. No children were in care, thus those standards regarding the care and supervision of children were not reviewed. All spaces to be used by the children were inspected and measured. The application requests a capacity of 88 which is not supported by the measurements taken at the inspection today. Based on the measured usable space, the facility can have a maximum capacity of 72. The playground space for the facility was inspected and measured, and can have a maximum of 11 children present at any time. A stipulation will be placed on the license regarding the limited number of children on the playground. No records were reviewed for children at the inspection today. The record for the Program Director was reviewed during the inspection. Any areas of standards related to direct service that were not determined during the initial inspection will be determined at the first unannounced inspection following the issuance of a license. All future inspections will be unannounced. The first unannounced monitoring inspection will be conducted within 60 days from the date the license is issued. Please contact the inspector at (757) 404-2322 if there are any questions. 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 #: 22VAC40-185-40-K
Description: Based on observation, a review of documentation and interview, it was determined that the facility did not ensure that the facility develops written playground safety procedures. Evidence: 1. There was no written playground safety procedures available for viewing during the inspection. 2. Staff #1 (Program Director) confirmed that there was not a written playground safety plan for the facility.

Plan of Correction: The facility responded: A written safety plan has been written and posted on the bulletin board of the center as of 10/14/16 a copy will be forwarded to inspector via email by 10/21/16

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B
Description: Based on observation, it was determined that the facility did not ensure that where playground equipment is provided, resilient surfacing shall be under equipment with moving parts or climbing apparatus to create a fall zone free of hazardous obstacles. Evidence: 1. The fall zone under the see saw was not sufficient based the required six feet on all sides of stationary equipment. There was less than two feet of resilient surfacing on each side of the see saw. 2. Staff #1 (Program Director) confirmed that the fall zone was not sufficient.

Plan of Correction: The facility responded: Resilient surface under the seesaw was sufficient in height however all of the fall zone area surrounding the see saw was not a complete 6 feet from each moving seat therefore the see saw was moved out of the sandy area leaving just the yellow base which can be used as a seating area in the sand for playing in the sand box. The daycare center would like to add the seesaw back into play when more kids have enrolled in the center and that we can move the seesaw to an area that sufficiently supports the 6ft around each moving seat. The riding bicycles were placed off of the sand area for use on the playground floor. This was corrected on 10/1/2016

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-380-A
Description: Based on observation and interview, it was determined that the facility did not ensure that there shall be a posted daily schedule that allows for flexibility as children's needs require. Evidence: 1. The Licensing Inspectors inspected five classrooms in the facility and there was not a posted daily schedule in any classroom. 2. Staff #1 (Prgram Director) confirmed that the daily schedule was not posted when the Licensing Inspectors inspected each classroom.

Plan of Correction: The facility responded: The daily schedules were printed and posted before the end of the initial visit and placed on each bulletin board on 9/30/16

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-540-E
Description: Based on a review of the facility's emergency supplies and interview, it was determined that the facility did not ensure that all required emergency supplies are kept at the facility.

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.
