Description: Based on record review and interview, the center failed to obtain documentation of additional immunizations once every six months for children under the age of two years. Evidence: 1. The most recent immunizations on file for child #1 were administered on 5/25/2016. a. Child #1 is under the age of two years. b. Administrative staff verified that updated immunizations had not been obtained. 2. The most recent immunizations on file for child #2 were administered on 11/07/2016. a. Child #2 is under the age of two years. b. Administrative staff verified that updated immunizations had not been obtained.

Plan of Correction: The center has obtained a copy of the child's updated shot record by the child's parent. Administrative staff have verified that the current record on file meets compliance standards for the child's age. Administrative staff will continue to run reports verifying compliance with this standard.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-140-A
Description: Based on record review and interview, the center failed to ensure that each child shall have a physical examination by or under the direction of a physician before the child's attendance or within one month after attendance. Evidence: 1. There was no documented physical exam on file for child #2. a. Child #2 has an enrollment date of 11/28/2016 and was in care during the inspection. b. Administrative staff verified that a physical exam was not on file for child #2.

Plan of Correction: The center is working diligently with the family and physician to obtain a current physical exam for this student. Once obtained administrative staff will verify its compliance. Administrative staff will continue to run reports verifying compliance with this standard.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that areas of the center, inside and outside, shall be maintained in a clean and safe condition. Evidence. 1. Standing water was observed inside of the outdoor easel catch tray. a. Standing water is a breeding ground for insects. 2. A dangling cord, from a radio, was observed in one of the older preschool classrooms. a. A child was observed napping on a cot that was placed adjacent to this dangling cord. b. Dangling cords are an entanglement hazard. Additionally, the radio could have potentially fallen on a child if the cord was pulled on.

Plan of Correction: The tray on the easel was immediately removed from the playground. Paints and supplies for the easel will now be brought out by individual classroom staff and brought back inside after use, preventing water from having a chance to collect in trays. The radio and cord were immediately placed in a safer and more secure position. Administrative staff will ensure that radio and cord placement safety checks are conducted regularly to ensure compliance.
