Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation and interview with the Director, not all areas and equipment of the center, inside and outside, were maintained in a safe and operable condition. Evidence: 1. In the Preschool classroom one of the toilets was covered with tape and paper marking it out of order and the Director stated that it had been out of order for a few months. 2. On the playground there was a plastic castle play structure that hard a large crack about six inches long on one side and a hole on the other side of approximately three inches in diameter that both posed a scratching hazard.

Plan of Correction: We will remove the castle today. We have had one person come out to look at the toilet who could not fix it and we are scheduling with another.

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.
