Description: Based on observation of play area equipment, the center did not ensure all areas and equipment were maintained in a safe condition. Evidence: 1. The wooden border on the school age playground was observed with cracked or otherwise deteriorating wood with a protruding nail. 2. The wooden picnic table was observed with multiple cracked pieces creating a splintered surface.

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.
