An unannounced Renewal inspection was conducted in the Family Day Home on September 8, 2017. Upon arrival, the LI observed 2 children in the care of the Provider. After the LI's arrival, an Assistant and two additional children arrived which included a child's arrival after school, transported to the FDH by school bus. Based on the children's ages, the points totaled 8. The children were served an afternoon snack. The children were observed during play and a teacher-directed activity. Dismissal procedures were observed at the end of the day. A sample review of records consisted of 5 children's, 2 caregivers' and 1 household member. Documentation of the practiced emergency drills was reviewed. The Provider reported medications are not administered. Currently there are no children with a diagnosed food allergy. The LI discussed background changes and the revised sworn statement with the Provider and Assistant. The on-site inspection was conducted from approximately 2:00pm to 5:30pm. Findings of the inspection were reviewed at exit. If you have any questions, please call (540)309-2310. Thank you.

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.
