An unannounced Subsidy Health and Safety Inspection was conducted on February 21, 2020 and February 25, 2020 to review supplemental health and safety requirements. A licensing inspection was also conducted on this date (see separate report for details). Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in the licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. There were 43 children present ranging in age from 5 years to 12 years. All staff must have documentation of the mandatory VA Pre-service Training and current certification in first aid and CPR within the first 90 days of employment. First aid and CPR certification needs to be renewed when applicable. When there are children with diagnosed food allergies enrolled, they must have an Allergy Action Plan completed by the physician. Reminder: evacuation drills are required monthly, shelter in place drills are required twice a year, and a lockdown drill is required once a year. Lockdown drills are to isolate children and staff from a security threat; shelter in place is to protect children from a natural or manmade threat. The last lockdown drill was conducted 5/8/2019.

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.
