Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to maintain the facility in a clean and safe condition. Evidence: 1. The inspector observed the outside play area. There are three holes in the ground next to the basketball court. The holes are large enough for a child's foot and could cause a child to fall or trip. The inspector observed the classroom. There are four small holes in the wall next to the block area. The filter in the return air vent in the floor is bent and covered with dust.

Plan of Correction: The teacher will complete a maintenance request to have the repairs made and the filter changed. The children will not play in the area of the playground with the holes in the ground until the holes are filled.


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.
