1 - There is an "super coffee energy drink" within reach of children, sitting on top of a cabinet approximately 3.5 feet tall in the school age. Energy drinks are not safe for children to consume and therefore should be left within the reach of children.

3 - In the two year old room there is peeling paint within reach of children on a blue shelf.

Standard #: 8VAC20-780-330-B Description: Based on observation the center failed to ensure required measurements of resilient surface depth and fall/zones lengths meet standards.
Evidence: There are two new pieces of playground equipment: one with moving parts, a bouncy teeter-totter and climbing dome.
1 - There is less than the required six inches of resilient surface under, around and into the fall/use zones of the climbing dome or the bouncy teeter-totter. The resilient surface depth is approximately four inches.
2 - There is less than six feet of fall/use zone surrounding the bouncy teeter-totter or climbing dome.
a. Additionally, the fall/use zones of the bouncy teeter-totter and climbing dome overlap each other and are obstructed by the chain link fence.

Standard #: 8VAC20-780-430-A Description: Based on observation the center failed to ensure that furnishings are an appropriate size for the children using it.
The children in the two year old room are sitting in chairs that do not allow their feet to touch the floor. The height of the table requires tall chairs. Therefore, the table nor the chairs the children were sitting at for lunch and other group activities were not the proper size for the children using them.
Plan of Correction: The center will ensure that the table and chairs in the two year old room and all rooms are the proper size for the children in the room.

1 - All children two years and up were served hot dogs that were cut in half across the width of hot dog.
2 - Staff 1 nor 3 was aware that the hot dogs needed to be cut in half across the length of the hot dog to prevent potential choking hazards in young children.
Plan of Correction: Going forward all hot dogs will be cut in half lengthwise before they the served to children. All potential choking hazard foods will be properly prepared before the foods are served to children three years old and younger.
