The children were observed at circle time, coloring, playing on the playground and during lunch. The 4 and 5 year old class was celebrating graduation. Five staff's records, five children's records and four board officer's records were reviewed. Violations from the previous inspection were also reviewed and one was repeated. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice. If you have any questions, please contact your licensing inspector at (276) 608-3758. Thank you for your cooperation.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to maintain the facility in a safe condition. Evidence: 1. The inspector observed the inside and outside of the center. In the classroom for the 3 and 4 year olds, there is a window blind that is broken with sharp edges. Also in this classroom, there is a television on a table that is a tipping hazard. On the playground, the inspector observed three bee hives in the ceiling of the large wood play structure. Also on the playground, there is a board pulling loose from the small wood play structure with the green slide. The board is located on the under side of the structure platform and has a crack in the wood.

Plan of Correction: The director will purchase a new blind and replace the broken one. A tie-down will be added to the television. The bee hives will be removed from the play equipment today. The boards on the small play structure will be replaced within two weeks. The children will not play on this equipment until the repairs are made.

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.
