Comments:
The licensing inspectors conducted an unannounced renewal inspection from 9:45am - 11:30am. There were thirteen preschool children in care with three staff. The children were observed arriving at the center, during breakfast and at story time. Two staff and three children's records were reviewed. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice. If you have any questions, please contact your licensing inspector at (276) 608-3758. Thank you for your cooperation.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B
Description: Based on observation and measurement, the center failed to have 6 inches of resilient surfacing surrounding playground equipment. Evidence: 1. The inspector observed the playground and measured the resilient surfacing. There was approximately 3 inches of resilient surfacing (bark mulch) at the end of the slide chute on the climber. The fall height of the climber was 24 inches.

Plan of Correction: Staff will rake additional bark mulch into this area before the children use the playground. Staff will monitor the playground to ensure the mulch remains at the required depth.

Disclaimer:

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.
