Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Description: Based on observations, record review and discussion with the staff, the facility failed to ensure that the separate record for each enrolled child contained all of the elements as required by the standards.

The record for Child #1 did not contain the following information: health information as required by 22VAC40-185-130 through 22VAC40-185-150, name of any additional programs or schools that the child is concurrently attending, documentation of viewing proof of the child's identity and age, and first date of attendance. 2.

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.
