Technical Assistance:
Consultation was given on the new background requirements for finger printing, a revised Sworn Disclosure Statement for new staff hired after 7/1/2017 and requesting out of state Central Registry checks for staff who have lived outside the State of VA within the last five years. The model SDS form is online at VA DSS as well as a link to the Adam Walsh site to assist with out of state central registry forms. VDSS will be paying for initial child care fingerprint checks until 9/20/18. Each facility must establish a point of contact with DSS. All questions regarding facility codes should be directed to OBI at 804-726-7884. Eligible letters will be sent out by emails and staff may not work with children (ratios or supervision) or be on site until a completed letter is received. Please read, review and respond to all correspondences regarding the fingerprint roll out.

Comments:
An unannounced monitoring visit was conducted today. Seven children were present with three caregivers for twenty one points which is within ratios for supervision. Children were engaged in free play, infant care and preparation to go outside to play in the yard. Dedicated space in the basement is equipped with materials, cribs and equipment for young children. All food is bought from home. Emergency preparation is up to date. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the violation notice. If you have any questions regarding the inspection, please feel free to contact me.
Thank you
