Review of the 15 minute ratio checks were completed and on 4/2/19 at 9:15am the Beginner's classroom had 17 children with 2 staff. During the next 15 minute check at 9:30, the room was back in ratio with 17 children and 3 staff. 3. Staff #1 and Staff #2 both stated the Beginner's classroom was out of ratio for about 10 minutes the morning of 4/2/2019. 4.

At 8:02am there were 10 children with 1 staff. The classroom came back into ratio at 8:13am with 10 children and 2 staff. 5.

Plan of Correction: Adjustment of staff schedules. Reminder of policy to call up front when nearing 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.

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.
