Today we discussed voluteers.

An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted between 10:00am and 1:00pm. There were 10 children in care and one resident child present. The licensee and a volunteer were present. Children present totaled 13 points. Children were observed in provider and self-directed activities including sensory play (play-dough and water), reading stories and drawing, hand washing and snack, transitions and outside play. The provider reports there are not any new children in care. One volunteer record was reviewed. There is not any medication being administered at this time. One violation in the are of physical environment and equipment was cited and may be viewed on the violation notice.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-250-B

Toys or objects less than 1-1/4 inches in diameter and less than two inches in length shall be kept out of reach of children under the age of three years. Evidence: 1 - At approximately 11:43am, child 1 a 19 month old, picked up and object, from the floor and put it in her mouth.

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.
