Today we discussed outside time daily weather and air quality, cot spacing and written permission to transport.

An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 12noon through 1:15pm. There were 14 children in care with three staff and one specialist present. Children's records and staff emergency contact information was reviewed. Staff records are stored at a central location and will be reviewed at a later date. Children were observed in teacher and self-directed activities including lunch, transitions, hand washing, restroom routines and nap. A single violation regarding care and protection was identified and appears on the violation notice.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A
Description: Based on observation and interview when supervising children the center failed to demonstrate care and protection. Evidence: 1 - Liquid sanitized was sprayed on child 1 while the child was on her nap cot which was located less than six inches from the table. a. Child 1 stated that the spray landed on her. Holding out her hand child 1 said "hey it sprayed by me." b. When child 1 was asked if the spray landed on her, child 1 responded yes.

Plan of Correction: Center management and staff will ensure that children are not within range of sanitizer spray before the tables are sprayed.


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. Only programs enrolled in Virginia Quality will display a rating. Virginia Quality contact information for your region is available at the following link Regional Contacts.
