Standard #: 22VAC40-185-130-A Description: Based on record review, the center did not ensure that one of five children's records have documentation of an immunization record before the child's attendance. Evidence: Child #5 (enrolled: 11/12/18) had documentation of immunizations dated 11/14/2018. Plan of Correction: We will make sure they don't enter our center until all records are present.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B Description: Based on observation, the center did not ensure that the playground equipment's fall zones were free of hazardous obstacles. Fall zones should not include barriers for resilient surfacing. Evidence: The preschool playground had a structure that contained a 4 foot slide with a fall zone measuring 6 feet 7 inches in front of the slide chute. There was a barrier and a fence located at the end of the slide's fall zone. The fall zone for a 4 foot slide should be 4 feet plus the the height of the slide in front of the slide chute. Plan of Correction: We will put a staff member near the slide when in use.

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.
