A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on 11/25/19 from 11:45am until 2:25pm to review supplemental health and safety requirements. At the time of entrance, there were 46 children in care with 8 staff present. A sample of 5 children's records and 5 staff records were reviewed. Children were observed eating lunch and resting quietly during nap time. Infant diapering, restroom and hand washing procedures were also observed. The center does not currently have any children in care that are prescribed medication. Transportation, first aid and emergency supplies, documentation of emergency practice drills, children's injury reports and center postings were reviewed. A licensing inspection was also conducted on this date; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. Violations were found during the supplemental subsidy health and safety inspection requirements and are identified on the violation notice.

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.
