Comments:
The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced monitoring inspection, at which play groups, activities, outdoor time, group time, centers, lunch time, and rest time were observed. Children were observed; and staff and children files and other documentation were reviewed. Twenty-nine (29) children, aged 4 months-5 years, were found to be in care with 9 staff, kitchen staff, and office staff. Previous violations were reviewed, and had been corrected. There were 5 violations in 2 areas of the standards. Please contact me if you need further assistance. Thank you for your cooperation. This inspection began at 9:15am and concluded at 1:15pm.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-140-A
Description: Based on review of children records the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to physicals. Evidence: Child record #3, enrollment date 7/10/17, did not have a completed physical as required, the allowed 30 days to obtain had expired.

Plan of Correction: A physical will be obtained as soon as possible and placed within the file. Children files will be reviewed for compliance and updated as needed.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Description: Based on review of children records the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to emergency contact information. Evidence: Child record #1 and #3 did not have a complete address for the second emergency contact listed as required.

Plan of Correction: This information will be obtained from the parents today or by the end of the week and recorded in the file. Children files will be reviewed for complete compliance by office staff. Any items needed to be updated or addressed will be completed timely.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-320-B
Description: Based on review of the areas used by the children the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to items required to be available in the rest rooms. Evidence: In the girls rest room, in the back of the facility, there were no paper towels or other hand drying systems available as the paper towel dispenser was empty at the time of inspection.

Plan of Correction: Paper towels will immediately be placed into the dispenser. Staff will be requested to monitor these and inform the office of when they are running low or when they become empty.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-A
Description: Based on review of the playgrounds the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to tripping hazards. Evidence: On the school aged playground the black mesh weed barrier was protruding through the resilient surfacing causing a tripping hazard near the basketball goal and beside the shaded picnic area.

Plan of Correction: The material will be trimmed and placed back under the mulch so there is no longer any hazard to the children. Staff will be requested to inform the office if they see that this is reappearing or appearing in other spots so it can be fixed.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B
Description: Based on review of the playgrounds the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to resileint surfacing depth. Evidence: On the preschool and schooler playground, under and around the climbing equipment and swings, the mulch was dispersed allowing for the depth of mulch within the fall zones to be less than required by ASTM guild lines. Areas measured approximately 2-3 inches in depth within the fall zones.

Plan of Correction: We will rake and fluff the mulch so it meets the required depths in the fall zones. If more is needed then it will be ordered and spread as soon as possible. Staff and office staff will continue to assess the playground for any needed updates.

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.
