An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed on June 23, 2017. The purpose of this visit was to measure the facility?s compliance with most, but not all, of the licensing standards. There were 4 children in care, for a total of 4 points with one caregiver. The children were observed playing board games and eating a snack of graham crackers and milk. The facility administers medication, but does not have any medication on site at this time. Caregivers have MAT training. The facility does not provide transportation. The last evacuation drill was conducted 6/15/17. The most recent shelter -in-place was conducted 4/14/17. Two caregiver, one household member and four children?s records were reviewed. Approximate time on site: 9:50am to 12:30pm

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-180-A
Description: Based on a review of records, the facility did not ensure that documentation of updated tuberculosis screening was obtained. EVIDENCE: The record of caregiver #2 contained a tuberculosis screening that was dated 9/5/14. The record of household member #1 contained a TB screening that was dated 10/24/14. There was no record of a TB screening that was conducted within 2 years of the most recent screening.

Plan of Correction: We will do new tuberculosis screenings to submit and will be done as soon as possible.


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.
