An unannounced monitoring inspection took place today from 1:45 - 3:45 pm. There were approximately 74 children present this afternoon. Outdoor areas were not inspected due to weather.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A Description: Based on observation during today's inspection, some areas of the center were observed to be in need of maintenance.
1. Outside the front door, lattice was hanging unhinged behind a bench, and some broken wooden areas were observed.
2. The infant room refrigerator thermometer read 50 degrees today. (It should be 40 or below).
Plan of Correction: 1. An order was placed this morning because of wind damage over the weekend. (the lattice was removed during the inspection.)
2. We will put another thermometer in there today to see if it confirms the temperature to be accurate, and we will adjust as needed.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B Description: Based on observation today, hazardous substances were not kept in locked places using a safe locking method that prevents access by children.
During today's inspection, both the laundry room and kitchen were unlocked when no staff were using the rooms.. The laundry room had small packets of detergent in a low shelving unit adjacent to the door, accessible at child height. A key was observed to be hanging from a hook, but the door was not locked from the beginning of the inspection. The kitchen was observed to have the door wide open, and detergents were accessible in a bin under the open sink.
Plan of Correction: These areas should be locked. I will talk to the staff and come up with a solution.
