Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Areas and equipment of the center are not maintained in a safe condition. Evidence: The metal door trim in the Infant 4 classroom is pulling away from the door. This is the door leading to the playground. The broken area is located at the lower left corner of the door. The staff has taped the area but the metal trim has sharp edges. The staff has placed a crib in front of the door so that the toddlers can not access the broken area, but the crib is blocking the classroom exit.

Plan of Correction: A thick layer of cloth was placed over the trim so the sharp edges are covered. The crib was removed from the door. A work order will be placed with INOVA to repair the door.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-B
Description: Based on observation, disposable diapers are not disposed in a leakproof or plastic-lined storage system that is either foot operated or used in such a way that neither the staff member's hand nor the soiled diaper touches an exterior surface of the storage system during disposal. Evidence: The step on trash can in the Preschool #1 class was broken, the staff was using her hand to open the trash can to dispose of dirty diapers.

Plan of Correction: I will order a new one today.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-520-C
Description: Based on observation and record review, the center has not obtained written parent authorization to apply diaper cream and diaper cream is not labeled. Evidence: Child # 3 in the toddler #1 class has diaper cream with no parent authorization to apply the cream. A diaper cream was observed in the Toddler #1 class with no child's name. Two diaper creams were observed in the Preschool #1 class with no child's name.

Plan of Correction: We will have the parent complete the form. We will label all diaper creams. The classrooms will be audited to ensure that all creams are labeled.

There is no documented date of the return search and there has been no follow up for this search. The staff was observed in the infant room today.

Plan of Correction: I have left an email message for central registry for the results.


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.
