Standard #: 63.2-1721.1-B-2
Description: Based on record review on 10/26/2018, the center did not ensure the results of a fingerprint background check were completed for one applicant/licensee, hired prior to January 22, 2018, by September 30, 2018. EVIDENCE: 1) The record for Applicant #2 contained results of a fingerprint background check dated October 26, 2018 which exceeds the September 30, 2018 deadline for agents/applicants hired prior to January 22, 2018.

Plan of Correction: Per the Director: Employee in question is on the board and rarely if ever interacts with children, therefore we were unaware the deadline applied. Background check for this individual was completed 10/26. ALL other employees of the school and the corporate office were completed by the 9/30 deadline.


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.

Virginia Quality is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for early care and education facilities serving children ages birth through pre-K.

Only programs enrolled in Virginia Quality will display a rating. Virginia Quality contact information for your region is available at the following link Regional Contacts.
