Thank you for the time and assistance with the unannounced monitoring inspection that was conducted on November 30, 2018, December 17, 2018, and December 18, 2018. The inspection was the result of a self-reported incident that was received in the Valley Licensing Office on November 27, 2018. The on-site portion of the inspection was held on November 30, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:35 a.m. On that date there were 20 children present in one classroom and in the care of two staff members. Two staff members were interviewed, one child's record was reviewed and one staff record was checked for updates. The exception to compliance was noted on the violation notice and the risk rating was noted on the supplemental page. Please contact your licensing inspector, Diann Reed, if you have questions concerning this inspection, the licensing standards, and/or if I may be of assistance to you (540) 280-0742.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-E-4
Description: Based on staff interviews and verification from staff, the center failed to keep the required staff to children ratio of one staff member for every 10 children. Evidence: 1. On 11/26/2018, Staff Member A took Child #1 (age 4 years) out of the classroom for approximately five to ten minutes leaving Staff Member B as the only staff member with 18 children (ages 3 to 5 years). 2. Staff Member A and Staff Member B confirmed the classroom was out-of-ratio with one staff member in one classroom and caring for 18 children.

Plan of Correction: MACAA Head Start supervision of child policy and the Virginia Department of Social Services Standards for Licensed Child Day Centers were reviewed with MACAA Fluvanna Head Start staff. The adherence to the policy and Standards will be monitored monthly to ensure compliance. Failure of staff to comply may result in further personnel disciplinary actions.


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. Eligible child care facilities must be fully licensed, licensed exempt and a VDSS subsidy vendor, or a voluntary registered day home and a VDSS subsidy vendor. 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.
