Technical Assistance:
Adult #2, who has previously been listed as a household member, is not currently residing in the home. However, if adult #2 returns home, he will need to complete a Sworn Disclosure Statement. Today we discussed the movement of the main childcare area from the back of the home to the living room at the front of the home. Since the living room and dining room are open to each other, even if the dining room is not a space utilized by children, it will have to be maintained in compliance with the standards since it is accessible to the children in care.

An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 11:25 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. At the time of entrance, 3 children, ages 22 months to 2 years old, for a total of 5 points, were in care with the provider. The records sample size consisted of 4 children?s records and 3 provider / assistant/ household member records. Children were observed playing with a variety of learning materials, eating lunch which consisted of breaded chicken, broccoli, corn and milk, being read to from children's literature and resting quietly at nap period. Medication administration was not observed. The provider does not administer medication to children in care and does not routinely transport children in a vehicle. One report for a minor injury was reviewed. 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.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-830-A
Description: Based on a review of documentation and interview, the licensee did not maintain up to date documentation of monthly evacuation drills. Evidence: The last documented evacuation drill was dated 12/15/16. When asked is monthly drills were practiced, the provider stated that they have been conducted monthly, but that she failed to document the drills as required.

Plan of Correction: The licensee will ensure that a minimum of once per month evacuation drills will be practiced and documented on the fire drill log, beginning this month.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A
Description: Based on observation, the licensee did not ensure that all areas and furnishings of the family day home, inside and outside, shall be maintained in a clean, safe, and operable condition. Unsafe conditions shall include, but not be limited to protruding nails. Evidence: The inspector observed a total of 6 protruding nails on the deck benches and along the front platform of the deck which is located in the back yard where children play outdoors. The nails protruded between 1/4 in and 1/2 inch from the surface of the wood and could scratch or snag a child's skin if they brushed against them.

Plan of Correction: The licensee stated that she will use a hammer to tap the nails back down today and will frequently monitor for protruding nails since the changes in temperature may cause the wood to warp and the nails to work their way out.


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.
