Comments:
This inspection was conducted by licensing staff using an alternate remote protocol, necessary due to a state of emergency health pandemic declared by the Governor of Virginia.

A monitoring inspection was initiated on May 19, 2020 and concluded on May 20, 2020. The director was contacted by telephone to initiate the inspection. There were seventeen children present and four staff. The inspector emailed the director a list of items required to complete the inspection. The inspector reviewed two children?s records and two staff records submitted by the facility to ensure documentation was complete. Information gathered during the inspection during non-compliance(s) with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the facility.

The Licensing Inspector has reviewed with the provider COVID-19 Essential Guidance for Child Care programs.

Violations:
Standard #: 63.2(17)-1720.1-B-2
Description: Based on review of two staff records and interview with staff, the facility did not have an Office of Background Investigations (OBI) fingerprinting determination letter prior to a staff beginning employment.

Evidence: The record for staff #1 (start date of employment December 10, 2019) had a fingerprinting determination letter was dated December 16, 2019. The record had documentation of hire date December 10, 2019 and orientation training completed on December 10, 2019. Interview with director confirmed staff #1 completed orientation training prior to receiving the fingerprinting determination letter.

Plan of Correction: Although staff member was not working with children and completed orientation outside of normal business hours, we will ensure that staff orientation is completed after background check is returned.

The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
