Technical Assistance:
Today we discussed the annual training requirements which are tracked from the effective date of the license (7/22/18) for a one year period. The vendor and any substitute and assistants must acquire a total of 16 hours of training annually by the end of the 12 months.

A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on 12/10/2018 from 11:40 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. to review supplemental health and safety requirements. There were 4 children present, 23 months to 3 years, for a total of 9 points, in care with the vendor. The records sample size consisted of 1 newly enrolled children?s records. The additional children's records and the Vendor / Assistant / Household members records were recently reviewed at the time of the initial licensing inspection on 6/22/18 and are current. Children were observed eating lunch which consisted of Corn Dogs, french fries, mixed fruit, apples and milk. Restroom procedures, hand washing, diapering, sanitizing procedures and rest period were also observed today. The vendor states that no medication is administered to children in care at this time and that one school aged child is routinely transported in a vehicle. Requirements for transportation were reviewed with the vendor - but transportation was not observed during the inspection. Children play outdoors in the front lawn with direct supervision and close proximity of the vendor. The vendor reports that there have been no accidents or injuries requiring first aid or medical treatment incurred by children in care since the last inspection. There are no children currently enrolled who have diagnosed food allergies. A licensing inspection was conducted on the same date as the SHSI supplemental inspection; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. No violations of the supplemental subsidy health and safety requirements were found. Thank you for your time during today's inspection.


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.
