- Technical Assistance:
Discussion was held on the topics of enrollment, current staffing, subsidy, and the changes with regards to background checks. Discussion about each child's record with regards to emergency contact information. As observed, the space for the address is small in nature; allowing only part of the address to be listed for each contact. Observation has included seeing only the town or only the street address. Where both are listed the writing must be done very tiny and may be hard to read.
The following inspection took place between the hours of 10 am through 3 pm. Today, I met with the Staff of the Kinder Care Learning Center #926 located in the town of Leesburg, Virginia. At the start of this unannounced monitoring inspection there were a total of 26 children with 5 classroom staff; good ratios in all 5 rooms. A total of 5 children?s files and 4 staff files were reviewed. The children were engaged in the following: large motor skills outside on the center playground, diapering, hand washing, music, infant sleeping, games, toy play, puzzles, lunch, nap time, and other organized activities. If you should have any future questions, please call. Thank you. Charlie Perkins, Licensing Inspector (703) 309-3963

On the date of inspection (08/24/2017), peeling paint was observed on the door leading to the playground within the Pre-K room. 2. A small hole was discovered on the top of a toy sink located in the 2's room. Also within the 2's room, the diaper changing table had a sliding door that was not working, and a small hole where a lock had once been placed. Both small holes serve as possible entrapments for the fingers of the children in care. 3. The freezer within the kitchen was running over zero degrees fahrenheit. The temperature read from 1 to 5 degrees at approximately 1 pm. 4. Outside on the school-age playground, the fence that faces the left side of the building had nails that were protruding out from its surface. These protruding nails serve as possible snagging points for skin or children's clothes. Plan of Correction: 1. A work order has been submitted. 2. A new diapering table is on order to replace the current one that was observed. The hole in the toy sink was corrected on the date of inspection. 3.
