An initial licensing inspection was conducted on February 20, 2018, by appointment, between the hours of approximately 10:05 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. There were five children enrolled and three children in the care of the provider and one assistant, on this date. The provider's record, assistant's record, four household members' records and all children's records were reviewed. The home, outdoor play area and pool area were toured, available records/documents and caregiver training (first aid/cardiopulmonary resuscitation) were reviewed and safety equipment was inspected (first aid kit, land line telephone, flashlight, fire extinguisher and radio). Posted information (daily schedule, menu, emergency telephone numbers and emergency evacuation plan and diagram), storage of cleaning supplies/hazardous substances and verification of rabies immunization for the dogs and cat were reviewed/observed. Program observation was completed. Activities provided on this date included: indoor play; diapering/restroom/handwashing procedures; lunch; outdoor play; and naptime. Adult/child interactions, behavior guidance and daily routines/transitions were also observed. The caregivers were observed to be patient and able to meet the individual needs of the children. The daily schedule was consistent with the activities provided. The children knew and followed the daily routine and transitions well. No violations of licensing standards were cited during this initial inspection. Areas of the licensing standards discussed included: diapering procedures and outdoor climber (railings, window and steps). Outdoor toileting and handwashing procedures were discussed, as well as the outdoor pond (not currently being used). A recommendation will be made for the issuance of a conditional family day home license upon completion of septic system upgrade and final zoning approval. Thank you for your time and assistance during the licensing process. Please contact me if you have questions concerning this inspection, the licensing standards and/or if I may be of assistance to you (540) 430-9262.

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.
