Standard #: 8VAC20-780-40-G Description: Based on record review and interview with the center director, it was determined that the center did not obtain proof of child's identity and age requirements as stated in the Code of Virginia.
Evidence: 1. The record of Child #1 did not have documentation for proof of the child's identity and age.
2. The center director confirmed the proof of identity of Child #1 was not obtained.
Plan of Correction: I will contact the parents today and tell them to bring in the proof of identity.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-40-M Description: Based on observation and interview, the center failed to maintain, in a way that is accessible to all staff who work with children, a current written list of all children's allergies, sensitivities and dietary restrictions documented in the allergy plan. This list was not kept in each room or area where children are present.
1. The allergy list was not posted in any classroom.
2. The center director acknowledged the list had been taken down and was not posted at the time of the inspection.
Plan of Correction: The list was taken down to laminate but the machine broke. I will post the list immediately in each classroom.

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.
