Comments:
An unannounced Subsidy Health and Safety Inspection was conducted with the provider. A licensing inspection was also conducted on this date (see separate report for details). Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in the licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. There were eight children present, ranging in age from 7 months to 4 years. Both caregivers have documentation of the 10 hour VA Pre-service Training and have current certification in first aid and CPR. If children with diagnosed food allergies enroll ? please review the applicable standards regarding food allergies. Reminder: evacuation drills are required monthly, shelter in place drills are required twice a year, and a lockdown drill is required once a year. Lockdown drills are to isolate children from a security threat; shelter in place drills are to protect children from a natural or manmade threat. The last lockdown drill was conducted 5/2019.
If you have any questions, please contact me at tara.barton@dss.virginia.gov or 804-662-9766. Time of today?s inspection: 11:40 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

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.
