An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted in the Family Day Home on October 16, 2015. The LI observed 10 children in care upon arrival, the children's ages ranged from infancy to preschool. Based on the children's ages, the point total was 27 points. The Provider and an Assistant were present and attended to the children's needs. The Provider reported 16 children are currently enrolled. Three additional school-age children arrived by bus after school. A call was received by the Provider to report that a fourth child would not be attending on this date. A discussion was held with the Provider regarding the total number of children receiving care at any one time. The Provider is responsible to ensure the number does not exceed the maximum licensed capacity of the home, 12 children. The LI reviewed a sample of 5 records, 1 caregiver and 4 children's. A prescribed emergency medication and written authorization to administer was reviewed for a child. The children were observed during varied activities including hand washing procedures, free play, afternoon snack, and outdoor play. The child care area was found clean, orderly and was supplied with age appropriate toys and equipment for the children's use. The children had completed a craft activity. Documentation of the practiced emergency drills and the first aid kit was reviewed. Dismissal procedures at the end of the program day were also observed. Findings of the inspection were reviewed with the Provider at the exit. The on-site inspection was conducted from approximately 2:00 to 5:30PM. If you have any questions, please call (540) 309-2310. Thank you.

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.
