Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on 02/16/2017 from 10:25am - 2:10pm. There were a total of 83 children in care with 17 staff. The ages of children in care ranged from infant - five years. Children were observed during morning program time, outdoor play, lunch and nap. Outdoor supervision and transition reviewed. Records were reviewed for five children and 14 staff. Violations were observed in two parts of the CDC standards and were reviewed with the center director during the exit interview.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that areas of the center shall be maintained in a safe condition. Evidence: 1. A bundle of plastic grocery bags was observed in an unlocked cabinet in the four-year old "Chimps" classroom. a. This cabinet is located under the children's hand washing sink which is accessible. 2. Plastic grocery bags are a suffocation hazard.

Plan of Correction: The unlocked cabinet was locked up immediately after inspector noticed the unlocked door - as the inner latch had not been connected even though the other side was locked. Teachers will be more aware and double check the locked cabinets by pulling on the cabinet after locking the keyhole. Management will also periodically audit the locked cabinetries.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that hazardous substances such as cleaning materials shall be kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: An open box of 20 Mule Team Borax laundry booster was observed on the floor of the storage closet in the multipurpose room. a. The label on this product indicated the contents as hazardous. 2. The closet was not locked and children were observed in this room.

Plan of Correction: The Borax was relocated to a locked cabinet. The teachers will ensure, when making slime, that the Borax will stay on person or be placed into a locked cabinet area for extra security. Management will also periodically audit all doors and storage areas to ensure that there are no products that could be considered hazardous.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-G
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that when food is brought from home the food container shall be clearly dated: Evidence: Two open containers of oatmeal cereal, in the infant room, were not dated.

Plan of Correction: The oatmeal cereal containers were labeled with the date after it was noticed it was missing. Infant teachers will continue to encourage parents to label each item of food for the day and will do backup checks at first feeding. The classroom will have tape and marker readily available for easy access. Management will also periodically audit the foods in the refrigerator and bins for labeling.
