The licensing inspector and administration discussed the requirements of Standard 22VAC40-185-420-A-5; for parents to receive a written copy of the center's policy regarding medication. Also discussed was Standard 22V AC40-185-510-C; which lists the requirements for the center's written medication policies. Part 3 of this standard requires that written policies include information on the duration of parent authorizations; provided that they shall expire or be renewed after 10 work days. Part 3 also states that medication policies shall include information that long-term medication authorizations (over 10 work days in length) may be allowed with written authorization from the child's physician and parent.
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 3/18/2021 and concluded on 3/22/2021. The director was contacted by telephone to initiate the inspection. There were 51 children present and 11 staff. The inspector emailed the director a list of items required to complete the inspection. The Inspector reviewed four children?s records, one medication record, and four staff records submitted by the facility to ensure documentation was complete.
Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance(s) with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the facility.
Please complete the "plan of correction" and "date to be corrected" for each violation cited on the violation notice and return it to the licensing office within 5 business days. Your plan of correction should contain 1) steps to correct the non-compliance with the standard(s), 2) measures to prevent the noncompliance from occurring again; and 3) person(s) responsible for implementing each step and/or monitoring any preventive measure(s).
The Licensing Inspector has reviewed with the provider COVID-19 Essential Guidance for Child Care programs.
The provider?s response for the plan of correction was not received as of March 29, 2021 and will not appear 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.
