Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B Description: Based on observation, the center did not ensure that hazardous substances such as cleaning materials were kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: There were several cleaning materials located in the center's kitchen. The kitchen door was closed during the inspection but the door was found unlocked by the inspector. All cleaning materials must be kept locked.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B Description: Based on observation, the center did not ensure that the playground equipment provided to the children contained enough resilient surfacing to comply with minimum safety standards. Evidence: The two year old playground contained one structure that required resilient surfacing: slides, platform, and the top of a tunnel. Resilient surfacing surrounding the structure was measured by the inspector and the fall zones for the areas of the structure listed above did not meet the minimum safety standards. The fall zones measured about 4 inches in depth and the required depth is 6 inches. Plan of Correction: The center's owner will order more surfacing to ensure the fall zone measurements are at the required depth of 6 inches. A plan has been put into place for the directors to set scheduled times for maintenance and measurements to be monitored of all the center's playground surfacing.
