An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on September 13, 2017. Observations included indoor and outdoor areas, supervision, staff/child ratios, health and safety, medication, and children's records. Three children's records were reviewed. Three medications were reviewed. At arrival to the center, there were 36 children in care with five staff members. The children were observed participating having breakfast and brushing their teeth, playing outside and in centers, during circle and story time, music and movement, and participating in a lockdown drill.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A Description: Based on record review, in two of five children's records reviewed, the licensee did not ensure that each child's record was maintained with all required information. Evidence: During the inspection conducted on September 13, 2017, the record for Child #1 did not include documentation of the work phone number for both parents and the record for Child #4 did not include the work phone number for one parent. Plan of Correction: I will contact the Family Services Coordinator to have the records updated.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B Description: Based on observation and inspection of the facility, the licensee did not ensure that where playground equipment is provided, resilient surfacing shall comply with minimum safety standards and shall be under equipment with moving parts or climbing apparatus to create a fall zone free of hazardous obstacles. Fall zones are defined as the area underneath and surrounding equipment that requires a resilient surface. A fall zone shall encompass sufficient area to include the child's trajectory in the event of a fall while the equipment is in use. Evidence: 1. During the inspection conducted on September 13, 2017, the children were observed during outdoor play on the Kindergarten playground. There was not an adequate fall zone behind the swing set; the swing beam measured 8'4" and should have had 16'8" of clearance. 2. The blue slide measured at 3'3" and should have had 7'3" at the end of the slide chute. The actual measurement at the end of the slide chute was six feet. 3. The merry-go-round did not have six feet of clearance on all sides; one side measured approximately 4'7" from the sidewalk. There was also inadequate resilient surfacing (wood mulch) surrounding the equipment that measured at approximately four to five inches. Plan of Correction: We will go back to using our pre-approved play space.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-C Description: Based on observation and inspection of the facility, the licensee did not ensure that emergency evacuation and shelter-in-place procedures/maps shall be posted in a location conspicuous to staff and children on each floor of each building. Evidence: During the inspection conducted on September 13, 2017, the posted map in the building did not include all emergency evacuation and shelter in place locations; there was also not emergency evacuation and shelter in place procedures posted. Plan of Correction: We will contact the supervisor regarding the map and will update accordingly.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-K Description: Based on observation and inspection of the facility, the licensee did not ensure that tables were sanitized before and after each use for feeding. Evidence: During the inspection conducted on September 13, 2017, the licensing inspector observed the children finishing their breakfasts. The staff member sprayed a bleach water solution on the tables and wiped the tables immediately thereafter, not allowing the surface to air dry for at least two minutes before wiping. Plan of Correction: We will retrain the staff on how to properly sanitize the tables.
Standard #: 22VAC40-80-120-E-2 Description: Based on observation and inspection of the facility, the licensee did not ensure that the findings of the most recent inspection of the facility were posted. Evidence: During the inspection conducted on September 13, 2017, the findings of the most recent inspection of the facility conducted on June 26, 2017 were not posted and were observed in the center's Licensing Binder. Plan of Correction: The inspection from today will be posted.
