Standard #: 22VAC40-111-30-A
Description: Based on the visual inspection of the family day home, the provider did not comply with the terms stipulated on the current conditional license issued. Evidence: Upon arrival to the family day home to conduct an unannounced monitoring inspection, this inspector observed three canines at the storm door with a child. Upon further investigation, the child at the door was enrolled receiving day care services. Based on the stipulations written on the license "Children will not have access to the canines in care," the provider was not in compliance with the terms of the current license issued.

Plan of Correction: The provider corrected the issue on site and informed children in care will no longer have access to canines as it was a misunderstanding.

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.
