Complaint related: Yes
Description: The fencing around the playground, facing the housing development, had four areas that were not anchored and could entangle clothing or snag skin. Evidence: Based on observation and conversation with the director, it was confirmed the fence had four areas that were not anchored.

Plan of Correction: 13 4x4?s were added to the bottom of the fence with 104 anchors to secure the 4X4?s to the fence to ensure that a child can not entangle clothing or snag skin. NOTE: A fence is not required for a playground. Bright Beginnings chooses to provide a fenced in playground to ensure the safety of all children.


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.
