Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B

A spray bottle labeled Bleach and water observed on shelf with diapers. 2. Inspector also observed a container of sunscreen in an unlocked cabinet below the changing table.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-490-C
Description: Based on staff interviews, the center failed to inform parents within 24 hours or the next business day when the children at the center have been exposed to a communicable disease listed in the the Departments of Health's current communicable disease chart. Evidence: 1. Staff stated that in early December, a staff member in the school building was confirmed with a case of pertussis. This staff member was in contact with children enrolled in the before and after program which is included in the License. 2. Parents were not notified that children were exposed to the illness and this illness is listed on Virginia Health Department's Reportable Disease List.

Plan of Correction: I was on vacation during the incident and had previously been communicating with Health Department about illnesses. I will contact parents to inform them of this and I will meet with all administrators to discuss Licensing Standards and importance of keeping programs in compliance.

Description: Based on observation and staff interviews, the containers of food and drink contents brought from home are not all labeled with child's first name and last name and/or dated.
