- Technical Assistance:
Today children were observed attempting to climb outdoor equipment which is not intended for climbing. Children were immediately redirected from climbing these pieces of equipment. However, given the ages and activity levels of the children in care, it is strongly recommended that all outdoor play equipment be located in grassy areas of the yard where the ground is more resilient and may absorb the impact of a fall. Play equipment that has moving parts or that is intended for climbing cannot be located over bare / hard packed ground and must be located over grass or a resilient surface. Written authorization from parents must be obtained and kept on file for any children that are transported in a vehicle or that ride in a vehicle while transporting other children to or from the family day home.
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 10:55 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. At the time of entrance the following adult to child ratios were observed: 4 children, ages 4 months to 3 years old, for a total of 11 points, with the licensee / provider. The records sample size consisted of 2 children?s records and 2 staff records. Children were observed playing outdoors, putting together puzzles, painting, playing with sculpting clay, sorting sequence cards and eating lunch which consisted of fish filets, green peas, pears, croissant and milk. Diapering, restroom procedures, hand washing (staff and children) sanitizing tables and changing surfaces, and infant bottle-feeding were also observed. Medication administration was not observed. The licensee states that there are no children being administered medication while in care and that there have been no accidents or injuries incurred by children in care requiring first aid or medical care since the last licensing inspection. Transportation is not currently being provided for children, but may resume during the school year. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice. Thank you for your time during today's inspection. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of assistance. The licensee provided verbal responses to the violations during the inspection, which were entered on to the violation notice by the Licensing inspector.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-100-A Description: Based on a review of records, the licensee did not obtain documentation of the results of a physical examination for each child within 30 days of attending the family day home. Evidence: Two children's records were reviewed. The record for child #1 did not contain documentation of the results of a physical examination. The enrollment date documented for child #1 was 4/24/15. Plan of Correction: The licensee was unaware that the documentation was not present in the file and will follow up with child #1's parent today to request a copy of the physical examination results no later than August 12, 2015.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-80-A Description: Based on a review of records and interview, the licensee did not document having viewed verification of the identity and age of each enrolled child within 7 business days of their first day of attendance. Evidence: Two children's records were reviewed. The record for child #2 did not contain documentation that the licensee had verified the identity and age of this child. When asked if a birth certificate or other form of identification had been viewed, the licensee looked through the file for a copy of the birth certificate but could not positively confirm that proof of identity had been viewed for child #2. Plan of Correction: The licensee will ask that the parent bring documentation verifying child #2's age and identity by the end of the week and will document having viewed it in the record.

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.
