An announced full inspection for initial licensure was conducted today. There were 26 children in care, with a total of 6 staff members assigned to their direct supervision. Children's records, emergency preparedness items, administrative documents, classroom materials, the indoor/outdoor physical plant, children's medications, and classroom programming were inspected today. The children were observed playing water games outside and enjoying outdoor playground time. This inspection was completed between approximately 10:00am and 11:30am.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A Description: Based on a review of children's records, it was determined that three records are not complete. Evidence: 1 - Child record A and record C do not include each parent's place of employment information. 2 - Child record B does not include "authorized pick ups" information. Plan of Correction: The registration forms have been updated since these parents completed them. Each parent will be asked for the missing information.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-80-A Description: Based on a review of administrative documents, it was determined that one classroom attendance was not completed correctly. Evidence: The attendance record for Room 2 indicated a total of 14 children present and in care; however, only 13 children were actually present and in care. Plan of Correction: The attendance was corrected. Moving forward, we will begin using an electronic attendance system that requires parents to accurately sign their child in/out each day.

Once the results are received, the findings will be immediately forwarded to the Inspector.

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.
