Thank you for your time and assistance during the unannounced monitoring inspection conducted on September 7, 2017 between the hours of approximately 11:01 a.m. and 3:45 p.m. Sixteen (16) children were enrolled and twelve (12) children were in the care of two/three caregivers on this date. Five children's records were reviewed and four caregivers' records were updated. No medications were administered on this date, as is the policy of this family day home. Facility documents, posted information and safety equipment (first aid kit, flashlight and radio) were observed/reviewed. The lunch provided on this date included fish sticks, salad, peaches, bread and milk. Program observation was completed. Observed activities included: indoor play (toys); outdoor play; restroom, diapering and handwashing procedures; lunch; naptime and departure/pick-up of one child. Adult/child interactions, behavior guidance and daily routines/transitions were also observed. The children knew and followed the daily routine and transitions well. Previously cited violations (inspection date - 7/18/2017) were reviewed for compliance; no repeat violations were cited. The one exception to compliance was noted on the accompanying violation notice. The use of jump ropes during outdoor play was discussed. If used, please ensure children are closely supervised. As discussed, please ensure the items are removed from the bathroom shower, the storage/kitchen area is inaccessible to the children and the pile of items in front of the building is removed. Please contact me if you have questions concerning this inspection, the licensing standards and/or if I may be of assistance to you (540) 430-9262.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-830-A
Description: Based on review of the evacuation drill log and discussion with caregiver #1 on September 7, 2017, the program failed to practice emergency evacuation procedures in August 2017. Evidence: 1. The last documented emergency evacuation drill was dated July 28, 2017. 2. A lockdown drill was conducted and documented on August 14, 2017. 3. Caregiver #1 confirmed the lack of an emergency evacuation drill in August 2017.

Plan of Correction: In the future, emergency evacuation procedures will be practiced monthly with all caregivers and children in care.


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.
