Technical Assistance:
Consultation was given on using the backyard for play area, moving the diapering area closer to the bathroom to allow staff and children immediate access to hand washing as well as the foot operated trash can to dispose of soiled diapers and subsidy requirements if the provider enrolls as a vendor in the subsidy program.

An unannounced monitoring visit was conducted today. Six day care children plus the provider's daughter were present with three caregivers for twenty three points which is within ratios for supervision. Children were observed in infant care and free play. Basement space has two rooms for children as well as a bathroom and storage area. All food is bought from home and was properly labeled and safely stored (refrigerator was 38 degrees) Two assistant files and one child's record were reviewed as well as emergency drills and crib area. Areas of non-compliance are identified in this report. Please sign and date the report and return it to me within 5 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.
