Comments:
A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on on 11/21/19 from 10:30am - 12:00pm. During the inspection there were 29 children ages six months old through four years old in care with six staff. Children were observed participating in various activities in the classrooms and eating lunch during the inspection. Records were reviewed for five children and five staff during the inspection. A licensing inspection was also conducted 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, were discussed during the exit interview, and are identified on the violation notice.

The documentation shall have been completed within the last 30 calendar days of the date of employment and be signed by a physician, physician's designee, or an official of the local health department.

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.
