The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced monitoring inspection, at which play groups, outdoor time, activities, group time, art, music, personal hygiene, lunch time, and rest time were observed.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-320-B
Description: Based on review of the rest rooms used by the children the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to availability of hand-soap. Evidence: In the first 2-3 year old classroom, on the left, there was no hand soap available for the children to use when attempting to wash their hands in the rest room or anywhere else within the classroom.

Plan of Correction: The director placed hand soap in the rest room for the children to use at the end of the inspection when violations were reviewed. Staff will be reminded to ensure their class room is compliant with standards at all times, and if items are needed from storage to request the item from the office personnel.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-440-A

In the infant room, children aged 2-5 months, there were 8 children in care during the inspection and only 4 cribs. Children under 12 months must sleep in and have a designated crib while in care.

Plan of Correction: A request for maintenance to secure the extra cribs from storage and bring them to the facility had already been completed. Another request was made during the inspection as well. Cribs will be secured as soon as possible and placed in the both classes to ensure compliance.

Description: Based on review of documentation and discussions with staff the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to shelter-in-place drills.

Based on this disclosure the facility was required to request a Central Registry Search for the state listed. As of this inspection, the request for this had not yet been initiated. The staff had been actively working at the facility.

Plan of Correction: HR had made an error and requested the out of state search on the wrong person. The request for staff #3 was initiated prior to the end of the inspection today. Upon receipt of the document, it will be forwarded to the facility and placed within the staffs record as required. Searches will continue to be initiated within the guidelines and time frames as required for compliance.


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.
