Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation, it was determined that the step on diaper container is used in a way that is not clean as the door handle to access the container is contaminated by staff hands while disposing of soiled diapers..
The step on container used for soiled diapers was located in a enclosed area where the staff would need to touch the door handle to open the door in order to dispose of soiled diapers. This potentially contaminates the door handle.

Plan of Correction: Corrected on-site during visit. Director moved the trashcan from the bathroom back to the area beside the changing table where it originally was located beside the changing table and the step on trashcan will remain in that location permanently. Also spoke to the teachers in the toddler classroom about not moving the trashcan back into the bathroom and reiterated the importance of trash can location in diaper changing rooms.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B
Description: Based on observation, it was determined that there was insufficient resilient surfacing surrounding the composite play structure on the Montessori playground. The standard requires at least six inches of resilient surfacing.
There was one inch of mulch surrounding the play structure on the Montessori playground.

Plan of Correction: Immediately after the inspector left, the director reached out to maintenance and purchasing to let them know that the mulch was insufficient and needed to be replaced. Mulch was immediately ordered and the director will follow-up with maintenance for a delivery date of new mulch.

Standard #: 63.2(17)-1720.1-B-3
Description: Based on a review of six staff files and an interview with the director, it was determined that one staff did not have documentation of the out of state central registry search within 45 days.
The center could provide no documentation that they had received the results of or any information regarding the out of state central registry findings for staff A. Staff A was hired on 4/15/19 and although the background check was sent off 4/17/19 there was no information regarding the results or follow-up.

Plan of Correction: Employee has fingerprinting results, sworn statement, along with the central registry results. Complete packet was filled out for the out-of-state background check and was present in the file. Previous manager did not follow-up with results. New director re-sent the packet for the background check the day of the licensing visit and will follow-up with the state until the results are received.


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.
