Standard #: 22VAC40-185-160-C Description: Based on a review of staff records, the licensee did not ensure that one of five staff records reviewed contained documentation of an updated tuberculosis screening which is required at least every two years. Evidence: The record of Staff #4 showed a record of last having a tuberculosis screening on 12/28/2016. Plan of Correction: Administration will ensure staff gets the TB screening completed.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-G Description: Based on observation and discussion, the center did not ensure that if hazardous substances are not kept in original containers, the substitute container shall clearly indicate their contents. Evidence: The licensing inspector observed a spray bottle located at the diapering area in the infant and toddler classroom which was not labeled. Staff indicated the contents of the bottle included bleach and water. Plan of Correction: Administration will ensure the container is labeled.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-290-3 Description: Based on observation, the center did not ensure all electrical outlets contained protective covers.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-A Description: Based on observation, the center did not ensure that playgrounds shall be located and designed to protect children from hazards. Evidence: The licensing inspector observed a climbing tunnel on the playground that was designed with multiple holes in the sides of the tunnel. The holes measured 4.5 inches in diameter and were appropriate to enable children to climb on top of the tunnel. The tunnel measured 25 inches in height. The tunnel is located at the edge of a hill that is approximately five foot in height with an approximate incline of 45 degrees. There is a sidewalk at the bottom of the hill. Additionally, there is a tree stump which is exposed by one to two inches adjacent to one side of the tunnel which is a hazardous obstacle. The climbing tunnel is sitting directly on the ground with no resilient surfacing. Plan of Correction: Administration will ensure the playground equipment is not in use until it meets the safety requirements.

The seesaw seat on one side is located 4 foot from a sidewalk. The rear area of the airplane equipment, used for sitting or standing, reaches a height of 19 inches.

Evidence: On 2/21/19, in the three year old classroom, the licensing inspector observed a total of 13 children with one staff present. Staff indicated there was no aide or additional teacher in the classroom. The ratio should have been 1:10. Plan of Correction: Administration will ensure ratios are met throughout the day.

Evidence: The licensing inspector observed the trash can used for diapering in the girl's restroom was uncovered.
