Technical Assistance:
We discussed the requirements for emergency drill records, and written policies and procedures. The risk assessments for violations were provided. We talked about the needs on the playground before you resume use including trash removal, a small board repair at the tunnel component, and replacement of locks for two gates. We reviewed requirements for first aid and emergency supplies.

Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced monitoring inspection conducted from 1:02 PM to 4:10 PM. Today, there were as many as eight children, ages two through seven years, present at any one time with three to four staff. Seventeen children were scheduled to attend part of the day. I viewed program activities, staffing, supervision, interactions with children, equipment, daily routines, posted information, lunch, agency inspection report, emergency supplies and drill records, injury records, six records for children, five training records for staff, indoor and outdoor areas. The children enjoyed access to a variety of toys and books, quiet rest time after lunch and active play in the gym. Let me know if you need any assistance. 540/430-9259

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-40-K
Description: Based on a review of written procedures, and an interview with administrative staff, the center failed to develop written playground safety procedures. Evidence: Administrative staff indicated that a playground safety plan was not written and provided to staff. Although staff have been told supervision procedures, the staff did not receive any written safety procedures for supervision, positioning of staff, use of the playground structure and maintenance of resilient surfacing.

Plan of Correction: The program director will write the playground safety plan and send a copy to the licensing inspector. A copy of the written playground safety plan will be given to each staff member. All written policies will be provided to new staff during orientation training.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-E
Description: Based on a review of the emergency practice drills, and an interview with administrative staff, the center failed to maintain a record of the dates of the practice drills. Evidence: During the record review, staff member 1 could only locate the monthly evacuation drill documentation during the first half of the year, July 6, 2018 and on November 27, 2018. Staff member 1 indicated that the monthly drills were conducted in August, September and October and the individual pages used for each practice documentation could not be found.

Plan of Correction: The program director will continue to search for the emergency drill records. A December practice will be conducted and recorded. The program director will establish a new and easy way to immediately file each emergency practice sheet so that the records are consistently stored in one place.


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.
