Technical Assistance:
The play equipment is off limits until brought into full compliance. Make sure all play equipment is placed at least six feet from the perimeter of other play structures or obstacles and stationary play equipment is not installed over any hard surfaces. Please refer to all of the standards outlined under standard 500.

The provider self reported a situation involving care of children. Interviews were conducted as well as a review of one child's file and an inspection of the outside play area. Please submit your plan of correction for the violations by 1/25/16. Arrival time: 3:30pm Departure time: 5pm

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-500-C
Description: Based on interviews and observation (on 1/20/16), it was determined that on 1/14/16, stationary outdoor play equipment was placed on a hard surface. Evidence: On 1/14/16 swings were placed over dirt ( grass was no longer under the swings due to wear/environmental conditions).

Plan of Correction: We will no longer use the wings until the grass grows back or we are able to get mulch.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-570-A
Description: Based on observation on 1/20/16 at 3:30 pm and an interview with the provider, it was determined that one caregiver exceeded 16 points. Evidence: The provider was alone with 9 children for a total of 19 points for approximately 30 minutes. The assistant returned to the home after picking up a child from school.

Plan of Correction: The assistant usually takes the older children with her when she has to pick up a child from school. Because it was very cold we decided to leave them at the house. We will not do that as of today. We will make sure the van is heated and children will go with the assistant so we will not be over points.


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.

Virginia Quality is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for early care and education facilities serving children ages birth through pre-K. Eligible child care facilities must be fully licensed, licensed exempt and a VDSS subsidy vendor, or a voluntary registered day home and a VDSS subsidy vendor. Only programs enrolled in Virginia Quality will display a rating. Virginia Quality contact information for your region is available at the following link Regional Contacts.
