After two attempts to contact center by phone were unsuccessful and went to voice mail, the Inspector walked around to the infant room window and knocked on the window. There were 78 children ( infants-5 years) with 18 staff. Inspector reviewed records, interviewed staff, and observed classes. Please call with questions 703-479-4679
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-D Description: Based on record review, the center did not conduct an evacuation drill in July and has not conducted shelter in place drills. Plan of Correction: We will conduct drills each month and 2 shelter in place drills within the next 4 months.
Standard #: 63.2-1720.1-B-2 Description: Based on staff interviews and record review, the center did not have Staff 1 and Staff 2 submit to fingerprinting before they started employment at this facility. Evidence: 1. Administration stated staff had to be brought in from other affiliated centers because of staff shortages. Two of the staff came from a Washington DC location. 2. Records for both staff did not contain the eligibilty letter and management stated they thought the DC's Background check was sufficient. Plan of Correction: We removed both staff from the classrooms and have given them the information to obtain finger prints.
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.
