Technical Assistance:
Discussion was held on the topics of current enrollment, current staffing, and training. Discussion of the newly obtained finger print checks. These national background checks replace the criminal record checks done through the state and are good for 5 years. In addition, the existing search of the central registry (CPS) checks and Sworn Disclosure Statements (SDS) are retroactively good for 5 years from the date of finding (for CPS) or completion (for SDS). As a reminder, new employees will not be allowed to start until an ?Eligibility Letter? is on file, and any new staff person who lives or has lived outside of Virginia within the past 5 years will need to have an out-of-state CPS check requested to be placed in their file as well.

The following inspection took place between the hours of 9 am through 11:30 am. Today, I met with the Staff of the Lovettsville Montessori School located in the town of Lovettsville, Virginia. At the start of this unannounced monitoring inspection there were a total of 24 children with 4 staff; good ratios in all 3 groups. A total of 5 children?s files and 5 staff files were reviewed. The children were engaged in the following: learning, centers within the classroom, bathroom breaks, hand washing, writing, projects, getting ready for lunch, and other organized activities. If you should have any future questions, please call or send an e-mail. Thank you. Charlie Perkins, Licensing Inspector (703) 309-3963

Standard #: 63.2-1720.1-B-3
Description: Based on review and interview, 1 of 5 staff files reviewed indicated that the authorized child day center did not obtain a copy of the results of a search of the central registry (CPS check) maintained pursuant to ? 63.2-1515 and any child abuse and neglect registry or equivalent registry maintained by any other state in which the individual has resided in the preceding five years for any founded complaint of child abuse or neglect against him or her. Evidence - 1. On the date of inspection (09/07/2018), Staff #4 listed on the completed Virginia's Search of the Central Registry that she had lived in both the State of Maine, and the State of Maryland within the past five years. 2.

The documentation shall then be placed on file at the center.

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.
