Standard #: 22VAC40-185-430-B Complaint related: Yes Description: Based on observation, and interviews, the materials used for the wading pool were not age and stage appropriate. Evidence: The container used for the wading pool was the plastic bin of an outdoor sand and water table; approximate size of 4 ft X 2 ft.

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.
