An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today with the provider, who was present with three children for at total of 7 points. One child was sleep while the other two were preparing for lunch, which consisted of polenta with an okra, fish and beef stew, broccoli, grapes and milk. No children had medication on site and there have been no injuries/accidents documented. Three household member's files were reviewed as well as five children's files.

Plan of Correction: I will start doing monthly escape drills.

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.
