An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today, July 22, 2015 to check for compliance with licensing standards. Most but not all standards were reviewed during today's inspection. The inspector arrived at 2:50 pm and concluded the inspection at 4:45 pm. There were eleven children present with two providers, for a total of 25 points. Upon the inspectors arrival, children were getting up from nap, having bathroom breaks/ diapering and washing hands before sitting down to snack. Today's snack consisted of cheese, crackers and juice. Children sang a blessing. Later children had circle time where they sang, reviewed colors, shapes, the alphabet, days of the week and months for the inspector. Children also played with picture cards. The cards were used as a game to make different patterns, reinforce the concept of small, medium and large, and sort/group items that were alike. Children were edger to show the inspector their skills. The caregivers were encouraging and praised children for their efforts and accomplishments. The child care areas of the home were inspected along with the outdoor play areas. The family day home has age and stage appropriate materials. New soft climbing blocks have been ordered for the younger children. The provider had the license, last inspection notice, emergency numbers, menu and information for parents posted. The first aid kit and non medical emergency supplies were inspected and found to be complete. Last evacuation drill was on 07/06/2015 and two shelter-in-place drills had been documented on 03/17/2015 and 05/19/2015. The provider does not administer medication nor provide transportation.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A
Description: Based on observations, the provider did not ensure all areas and furnishing of the family day home, inside and outside, were maintained in a clean, safe and operable condition. Findings: 1. A floor board on the deck had split at one end into three pieces. The board also was raised at the end where the nails no longer held it in place. The raised split board had jagged edges and posed a potential tripping hazard. The deck is used as a play area for children in care. 2. A small piece of lattice that surround the deck was broken off leaving a jagged edge towards the bottom of the lattice.

Plan of Correction: Per the provider: I will start working on calling someone tomorrow to come and replace the board. I will also have them replace or repair the area of lattice that broke earlier today. Children will not play on the area until the repairs are complete.

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.
