Technical Assistance:
A second shelter-in place drill needs to be conducted prior to the end of December 2015. Consultation was given on transitioning sleeping children into cribs/cots if they arrive to the day care asleep in the car seats. Car seats are not intended for long term sleeping and put the child at risk of suffocation. The children should be transtioned within 15-20 minutes into an appropriate sleeping area such as crib or cot.

An unannounced monitoring visit was conducted today. Three children were present for nine points with one caregiver which is within ratios for supervision. Reviewed programming and sleeping standards with the caregiver. Please ensure programming for older children (2-5 years of age) is active, develops independent and creative skills as well as challenges them intellectually. Children should not sleep more than 2 hours a day unless they are infants who sleep as required by their individual needs. Lunch is provided by the caregiver. Emergency drills and trainings are up to date and written emergency plan was last reviewed 5/2015. Background checks are current for provider and household member. Areas of non-compliance are identified in this report. Please sign and date the report and return it to me within 10 calendar days from date of receipt. If you have any questions regarding the inspection, please feel free to contact me. Thank you Ann Dramstad Licensing Inspector 703-314-0860

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.
