Standard #: 8VAC20-780-270-A
Description: Repeat Violation
Based on observation the facility did not maintain the center, inside and outside, in a
clean, safe and operable condition.
*The playground fence, near the CH 1 room, had:
1. A support pole with broken brackets and missing bolts.
2. The end cap is missing on the cross bar at the top of the fence posing a finger
entrapment area.
* The CH 2 classroom had sharp objects accessible to children. An apple corer/slicer, a large, serrated edge plastic knife, and a "chopper" with a crimped metal edge were on a low shelf for use by children.

Plan of Correction: Brackets that were not in use due to missing bolts and having been replaced with wire ties or pipe straps, have been removed.
Remaining brackets now have bolts.
Poles with open ends have been capped with extra caps or liberally covered with electrical tape to impede access.
We removed sharp objects such as apple
slicers, choppers, and similar items from free access by children. Instead, we provide them to children under the supervision an adult nearby.


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.
