An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted in the Family Day Home on November 16, 2017. The Licensing Inspector observed nine children and three caregivers present upon arrival to the home. The children's ages ranged from thirteen months to three years. Based on the ages of the children in care, the points totaled 20. The children were observed during free play. Several children were observed working puzzles. The Provider also read a book to the children. The children were visited by the county book mobile during the inspection and selected a book of their choice. Reportedly the children have been learning about community partners. Several children departed from care prior to additional children arriving to the FDH after school. Five children including a resident child were transported by the school bus. The children were served an afternoon snack. A sample of 5 children's records and 1 caregiver's record was reviewed. The LI also reviewed documentation of the practiced emergency drills. A prescribed medication was observed for one child in care. Two caregivers have completed medication administration training (MAT). A discussion was held with the Provider regarding reporting procedures for any serious injuries that require outside medical treatment. As a non-subsidy Provider, you are currently requested to complete the on-line form and submit to the Licensing Division in Richmond. Information was provided regarding VA Preservice on-line training. The child care area was clean, orderly and supplied with age appropriate toys and materials for the children's use. Departure procedures were reviewed also. The on-site inspection was conducted from 2:30 to 6:00pm. There were no observed violations during the inspection. If you have any questions, please contact this LI at (540)309-2310. Thank you.

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.
