Standard #: 22.1-289.035-B-4
Description: (Repeat Violation) Based on review of 5 staff records, the center did not obtain the results of a central registry check from all states in which staff members have resided within the last five years prior to employment.

The record for Staff #1 (date of hire 11/21/23) did not contain documentation of a completed central registry check from all states where they resided within the last five years prior to employment.

Plan of Correction: New employee lived in three different states in past five years. All background checks required in two states were completed and clear. It was unclear that the CPS background check was needed in the third state. Clearance for third state has been sent and results already received confirming eligibility to work in daycare. All background checks for this employee have now been successfully completed. Training completed to ensure background checks completed timely for any future employees.


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.
