Comments:
An unannounced renewal inspection took place today from 10 am - 12:30 pm. There were 32 children present in two classes with four regular staff. I observed children involved in self-chosen manipulative activities; coloring and cutting; and learning about unique shapes. I also watched a teacher talk to children about portrait drawing; and a visitor read a funny story to a group of children. Outdoor areas were not inspected due to weather. If you have any questions, please contact me at brenda.kuhlman@dss.virginia.gov

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on observation today, some hazardous substances were accessible in an unlocked cabinet in an unlocked room which was used for reading today. Evidence: In the unlocked room across from the classroom, an unlocked cabinet had a lighter and a book of matches on a shelf.

Plan of Correction: Removed during inspection. We will have the church put a lock on the door or on the cabinet, and we will not use that room.

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.
