An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted on November 13, 2017 between the hours of approximately 10:40 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Twelve (12) children were enrolled and three children were in the care of two caregivers on this date (7 points). Three additional children were in care before school, on this date. Five children's records and two caregivers' records were reviewed and/or updated. No medications were administered, as is the policy in this family day home. Facility documents (attendance record, emergency evacuation, shelter-in-place and lockdown drills, injury report and rabies vaccination), posted information (daily schedule, license, inspection documentation, emergency plan/diagram, emergency telephone numbers and menu) and safety equipment (first aid kit, flashlight, fire extinguisher and radio) were observed/reviewed. The water temperature was measured and the refrigerator temperature was checked. The lunch served on this date included hot dogs, carrots, potatoes, apples, cheese and milk. Program observation was completed. Activities observed included: indoor play (coloring, puzzles and toys); diapering, restroom and handwashing procedures; lunch; and naptime. Adult/child interactions, behavior guidance and daily routines/transitions were observed. The posted daily schedule and menu were consistent with the activities and meal provided. Substantial compliance continues to be maintained; no violations of licensing standards were cited. 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.


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.
