Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation and staff interviews, not all of the areas and equipment of the center were maintained in a safe and operable condition. Evidence: The slide bolt latch on the fence door located on the toddler play ground was unable to be securely locked without substantial pulling and lifting the latch into place. The electronic panic bar was not functioning and the alarm did not sound when the door opened allowing toddlers to leave the playground.

Plan of Correction: The lock has been replaced and the panic bar has been repaired and is now functioning properly. The lock on the playground fence will be checked daily by opening management.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A
Description: Based on staff interviews, it was determined that the center staff failed to ensure the care, protection, and guidance of children on the playground. Evidence: On July 25, 2017 at approximately 11:00 AM, four two-year old children continuously pushed a utility cart into the fence door located on the toddler playground until it opened. The four children left the playground and were retrieved on the grassy hill area immediately outside of the fence. The back of the facility is located at the intersection of two four lane roads. Staff A was engaged in a conversation with another staff member with her back turned away from the children on the playground. Staff B allowed the children to play with the utility cart while she was putting the water play toys and hoses away in the storage area which was near the fence door that the children exited. Staff B immediately noticed that the children had gone outside of the fence as she could see them through the gate as she put water play items away. She was also notified by a member of the community walking by that the children were coming out of the fenced area. Staff A and B retrieved the children with the assistance of the community member passing by.

Plan of Correction: The staff members involved in the incident were terminated immediately. There was a mandatory training on supervision for all staff members.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-F
Description: Based on staff interviews, the center failed to ensure that all children under 10 years of age were within actual sight and sound supervision of staff at all times. Evidence: On July 14, 2017 at approximately 4:30 PM, Child A, 2 years of age, was left alone in ?Toddler City Place? (the in-door recreation area). According to information obtained through staff interviews and documentation, the child was out of staff sight and sound supervision approximately 5 minutes.

Plan of Correction: The teacher involved in this incident was terminated. There was a mandatory training on supervision for all staff members. A mandatory training on staff-to child ratios and face to name child identification will be conducted with all staff members at the center.
