63.2 Facilities and Programs..

An unannounced inspection was conducted on August 24, 2016 and September 20, 2016, in response to a self reported incident reported to the Valley Licensing Office on August 16, 2016. The initial areas of concern included the facility space, indoor temperature and supervision of children. An additional concern included transportation of children. Interviews were conducted, observations made and available documentation was reviewed. The preponderance of the evidence did not support the allegations and the complaint was, therefore, not valid. Although not referenced in the originally reported concerns, licensing standards 22 VAC 40-111-(2)-50-A, 22 VAC 40-111-(9)-690-C and 22 VAC 40-111-(9)-690-E were found to be in violation. Refer to the violation notice for additional information. Issues discussed included: documentation of daily attendance; diapering procedures; use of the garage; and permission for transporting children. A copy of the general written permission form for taking children off of the facility premises was provided. Please be reminded that it is the responsibility of the licensee to ensure ongoing compliance with the licensing standards. Please contact me if you have questions concerning this investigation, the licensing standards and/or if I may be of assistance to you (540) 430-9262.

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.
