An exit meeting was completed by the licensing inspector with the provider to review the inspection findings.

A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 from approximately 11:40 am to 1:00 pm to review supplemental health and safety requirements. Upon the licensing inspector's arrival, the children were observed at the family day home in the designated area participating in a variety of school activities to include relay racing for physical education and interacting with peers. The licensing inspector received assistance from the provider throughout the inspection. During this inspection, there were 5 children totaling 9 points being cared for by the caregiver. The children in care were observed by the licensing inspector participating in various activities to include playing with age appropriate toys, watching Despicable Me, playing with a variety of instruments, and listening to interactive musical songs. The licensing inspector also interacted with the caregiver and the children when appropriate. The caregivers were observed providing age appropriate supervision and addressing children's overall needs. On 10/31/2017 the renewal inspection was initiated in which the bathroom, kitchen, and designated childcare areas were inspected and these areas were reinspected during this inspection as well. The designated areas for childcare were deemed appropriate and equipped with age appropriate toys and materials to meet the ages and stages of development of the children. The inspector reviewed the required postings to include license, prior inspection summary, emergency contact information and menu. The first aid kit and emergency supplies, fire, shelter-in-place, and lockdown drills, thermometers, and emergency preparedness plan were inspected and determined to be in compliance with the licensing standards. The lockdown procedures and emergency preparedness plan were reviewed by the inspection. The emergency preparedness plan was last updated on 07/05/17. There were five children's, the provider's, one provider's assistant, and two household member's records reviewed for compliance of standards. There are currently no medications being administered by providers.
Last fire drill: 11/01/17
Last shelter in place drills: 08/20/17 & 10/08/17

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.
