Today we discussed food service as it relates to portion sizes and resilient surface.

Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 10am through 3pm. There were 40 children in care ages 16months through five years with five staff. Children and staff records were reviewed. Children were observed in teacher and self-directed activities including outside play, quiet activities, restroom routines, hand washing, lunch and nap. Violations regrading children's records, physical plant, resilient surface, hand washing, food service, and background checks were observed and cited on the violation notice.

Violations:

Evidence: 1 - The records for child 1 and 2 do not have documentation of annual record update. a. Child 1 has a documented first date of attendance as 12/7/15 b. Child 2 has a documented first date of attendance as 2/22/16 2 - Staff 1 and 4 confirm that there is no annual update in the records of children 1 and 2.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation and interview the center failed to demonstrate that areas are maintained in safe condition. Evidence: There are dangling electrical cords on from the water fountain and cordless phone in the 4/5 year old room. The cords hand down in such a way that they pose an entanglement hazard.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B
Description: Based on observation and interview the center failed to provide resilient surface under equipment with moving parts or climbing apparatus. Evidence: 1 - The middle playground has less than six inches of resilient surface under, around and in the fall zone of the equipment. The resilient surface on the playground measures approximately 2 to 3 inches in depth. 2 - Additionally, grass, weeds and moss was observed growing up through and on top of the resilient surface. Grass, weeds and moss growing through the resilient surface negates the resiliency of the surface. 2 - Seven children were observed on the middle playground playing on the spring rocking airplane, a green rocker and climb and slide. 3 - Staff 3 confirmed that there is less than six inches of resilient surface on the middle playground.

Plan of Correction: Corrected during the inspection. The children were moved to another area of the outside play space. Center management will either remove all the equipment from the middle playground that requires resilient surface or the resilient surface will be maintained as required.
