Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B Description: Based on the inspector's measurements of resilient surfacing taken at fall/trajectory zones for stationary playground equipment, the center failed to ensure the surfacing met required depth for type of equipment. Evidence #1: The inspector measured the rubber mulch used as resilient surfacing for the combination climber/slide on the school age playground in four areas of the fall/trajectory zones. The surface measured three inches in three areas and four inches in depth in one additional area. The required depth of resilient surfacing is six inches. Evidence #2: The inspector measured the rubber mulch used as resilient surfacing on the preschool playground at the chute of two slides and the depth of surfacing measured two inches at one slide and one inch at another slide. The required depth of resilient surfacing is six inches. Plan of Correction: The PD stated the mulch is on order and the target date for the delivery of the mulch is within the month.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-F-4 Description: Based on the inspector's observations in the Red Bears classroom with two year old children in care, the center failed to ensure food was not offered to children three years of age or younger that pose a potential choking hazard. Evidence: The inspector observed the Red Bears classroom during lunch time and the children were actively eating hot dogs that were not prepared in a manner to prevent choking. Plan of Correction: The PD will remind kitchen staff to cut all hotdogs in a manner that prevent choking before it is brought to the classroom.

There was no evidence of follow-up with the agency responsible for processing the request when it was not returned. Plan of Correction: The PD called the main office regarding the background check and follow-up with the agency responsible for making the request was conducted during the time of the inspection. Background checks will be carefully tracked for all future hires.
