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 renewal inspection was initiated on 5/17/21 and concluded on 5/18/21. The director was contacted by telephone to initiate the inspection. There were 39 children present and 7 staff present. The inspector emailed the director a list of items required to complete the inspection. The Inspector reviewed 3 children?s records and 3 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. The Licensing Inspector has reviewed with the provider COVID-19 Essential Guidance for Child Care programs.
Standard #: 63.2(17)-1721.1-B-4 Description: Based on a review of three staff records, it was determined that the provider did not ensure that the center obtain a copy of the results of a criminal history record information check and sex offender registry check from any state in which the applicant has resided in the preceding five years.
1. The record for staff #2 (date of hire 05/10/21) did not contain documentation of a completed criminal history record information check and a completed sex offender registry check from the state of Kentucky. The sworn statement or affirmation located in the record for staff #2 indicated that staff #2 lived in the state of Kentucky within the last 5 years.
2. Staff #4 (Program Director) reviewed the record for staff #2, and confirmed that the criminal history record information check and sex offender registry check from the state of Kentucky had not been completed prior to employment
Plan of Correction: The provider responded: The criminal history record information check and the request for the sex offender registry check for Kentucky for staff #2 will be sent. All new employees that have lived outside of the state of Virginia will not start until the criminal history record information check and sex offender registry check from the state they previously resided in has been received. We will forward the results to our Licensing Inspector when it is received.
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.
