Standard #: 8VAC20-780-80-A
Description: Based on review of the written attendance record and interview with staff, the center did not ensure they maintained a written record of daily attendance for each group of children documenting the arrival and departure of each child in care as it occurs.

Evidence: During inspection in the PreK classroom, there were 9 children present, but the written record reflected there were 10 children present.

Plan of Correction: Staff member was retrained on proper attendance documentation.

Standard #: 8VAC20-780-330-B
Description: Based on observation and inspection of the playground, the licensee did not to ensure that the required amount of resilient surfacing was under playground equipment with moving parts or climbing apparatus to create a sufficient fall zone.

1)The PreK and SA playground has a swingset that is 68 inches in height with a 2 inch mat under each swing. Both mats have holes in them so they are not considered resilient in those areas and the wood chips under the mat measure 3 inches in depth instead of the required 6 inches.
2)The PreK and SA playground has a slide that is 40 inches in height with wood chips at 4 inches in depth instead of the required 6 inches.
3)The Toddler and Twos playground has a swing set that is 80 inches in height. At 126 inches from the front of the swing beam, the resilient surfacing stops and there is a 5 inch wide wooden support beam for the playground surround. Resilient surfacing is required to extend to twice the height of the swingset on the front and back so 6 inches of resilient surfacing would need to extend to 160 inches from the swing beam.
4) The Toddler and Twos playground has a play equipment platform that is 15 inches in height with wood chips at 1 inch in depth instead of the required 6 inches.

Plan of Correction: 1. New mats were placed down to provide the required surfacing 4/19/23.
2. The mulch was raked to the slide area to provide the required surfacing 4/14/23.
3. The beam will be moved, additional mulch will be added. The work order has been submitted to maintenance and scheduled with the vendor. Swings will not be used until completed 4/27/23.
4. Raked to obtain required surfacing 4/27/23.

Standard #: 8VAC20-780-520-C
Description: Based on observation, the center did not ensure that diaper cream was kept inaccessible to children.
