The record for Child #5 did not contain the following information: the name and phone number of child's physician and name, address and phone number of two designated people to call in an emergency if a parent cannot be reached; the two people listed were the child's parents.

Plan of Correction: Files will be corrected.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-80-A
Description: Based on observations and discussion with the staff, the facility failed to keep a written record of children in attendance each day. Evidence: The facility did not have a written record of children in attendance. The facility was using an online attendance method; children are scanned into the program each day upon arrival. There was no record of attendance available to review during the inspection.

Plan of Correction: The Child Care Director will create a document to log attendance each day.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on observations and discussion with staff, the facility failed to ensure that all hazardous substances, such as cleaning materials, shall be kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: There was a spray bottle of glass cleaner, an aerosol bottle of Sanicare and a bottle of windshield washer fluid that contained antifreeze in the open compartment of the drivers door of the Green Bus. There was no way to lock these hazardous substances in the area they were stored on the bus.

Plan of Correction: The cleaners will removed immediately.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-E-4
Description: Based on observations and discussion with the staff, the facility failed to meet the required one staff member for every 10 children in a group of children aged three years to the age of eligibility to attend public school (five years by September 30). Evidence: There were a total of 36 children in the child care room of the facility and only 3 staff members. The ages of the children were 4 years to 11 years old. The required ratio for a group of children containing a 4 year old is 1 staff member for every 10 children. A 4th staff member arrived at approximately 4:15 p.m. and the required ratio was met at that time.

Plan of Correction: A new staff member has been hired and will start next week. Groups will split to meet ratio.


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.
