Technical Assistance:
Consultation was given in the following areas: 1. A MAT trained staff member should be on-site during all hours of operation. The RN for the school clinic leaves at 2:00 and would not be available for the last hour of the program. Registration for MAT classes can be found on the VA DSS web site under Professional Training. 2. Adding tummy time to the infant daily communication sheet for easy reference for staff. 3. Moving the large blue mat to fit under the indoor slide to provide additional cushioning at the end of the slide. 4. Verified LA Baby cribs are in compliance with current CPSC federal guidelines by checking on-line product information.

An announced initial visit was conducted from 9:00-12:00 at the facility. No children were in care and will not be on-site until summer school starts July11, 2016. Program has four groups serving infant-three years and supporting teens that are still in school. Mothers and babies are encouraged to spend time together throughout the school day. The school nurse does a daily health check each morning with the parent and child. Policies and procedures, staff records for lead staff, emergency preparation (FA/CPR certification, maps, supplies, and drills) were reviewed as well as menus/nutrition for children. Program participates in the USDA food program so all food is maintained at the center with the exception of special formula. Children and parents are transported by APS school transportation. Model DSS forms will be completed by the parent for child enrollment, injury forms, authorization for medication, sunscreen and insect repellent. Areas of non-compliance are identified in this report. Please sign and date the report and return it to me within 10 calendar days from date of receipt. If you have any questions regarding the inspection, please feel free to contact me.

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.
