Evidence: In the Intermediates, Pre K1, PreK2, and Beginners classrooms, chipped and peeling paint was observed accessible to children. In the Beginners classroom, the floor tile is lifting, which could cause a tripping hazard to children. Also in the Beginners classroom, the molding is pulling away from the wall, exposing the wall and broken blinds with hanging string were observed. On the back of the building, peeling and chipped paint was observed and is accessible to children.

Plan of Correction: I have already contacted home office regarding the maintance issues. He has repaired some and will be back to complete the rest.

Description: Based on observation of the playground, there is an insufficient amount of mulch. Evidence: The fall zones on both playgrounds are exposed and do not have sufficient mulch to protect a child in the event of a fall.

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.
