An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today, June 4, 2018 to determine the provider's compliance with family day home standards. The inspection was initiated at 10:30 am and concluded at 1:00 pm. Upon the inspector's arrival, nine children were in care with two caregivers for a value of 24 points. Shortly after an additional caregiver arrived. Children were observed singing and dancing to a music video. Songs identified body parts and children pointed to them as they sang along. The three infants were sleeping at the time of the inspector's arrival. Later children had time outside to play with small trikes and toys. Upon returning inside children had bathroom breaks, diapering was conducted and hand washing. Lunch time was also observed. Today's lunch consisted of pasta, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, applesauce, mixed vegetables and milk. All areas used for child care were inspected along with a walk through of the entire home. The family day home has age appropriate materials and supplies. The provider had the following required information posted: The license, last inspection notice, emergency numbers, allergies, menu, and attendance sign in and out sheets.

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.
