Technical Assistance:
Household children (to include foster children) count in points only when they are younger than 8 years old.

An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 2:10 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. At the time of entrance, 3 children, ages 2 to 3 years old, for a total of 6 points, were in care with the licensee present. The records sample size consisted of 3 children?s records and 2 provider / assistant/ household member records. Children were observed watching a children's television program, resting quietly, and pretend playing in the housekeeping center and playing with toys. Medication administration was not observed. The licensee states that there are no children currently being administered medication while in care. Transportation is not routinely provided to children in care and there have been no accidents or injures requiring first aid or medical care incurred by children in care since the last inspection. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice. Thank you for your time during today's inspection. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of assistance. The licensee provided verbal responses to the violations during the inspection, which were entered on to the violation notice by the Licensing inspector.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-100-A
Description: Based on a review of records and interview, the licensee did not obtain, for each enrolled child, documentation of a physical examination by or under the direction of a physician prior to the child's attendance or within 30 days after the first day of attendance. Evidence: Three children's records were reviewed. The record for child #3 did not contain documentation of the results of a physical examination. The licensee was also unable to locate a physical form in the record.

Plan of Correction: The licensee spoke with child #3's parent during the inspection and requested that a physical form be submitted as soon as possible. The parent agreed to provide this to the licensee.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-40-D-5-a
Description: Based on interview, the licensee did not ensure that all household members have the results of a child protective services central registry check within 30 days of a 14 year old (or older) beginning to reside in the home or a person in the home becoming 14 years old. Evidence: The licensee stated that she has taken in 2 new foster children (living in her home) since the last inspection. When asked the ages of the foster children she stated that one child is 10 years old and the second child is 15 years old. When asked if a Child Protective Services central registry check had been received for the 15 year old child, the licensee stated that she did not realize she needed to obtain it and had not done so.

Plan of Correction: The licensee stated that she will send off for a central registry check for her new household member this week and will do so immediately in the future for new household children 14 years of age and older.


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.
