An unannounced renewal study was conducted today with the provider, who was present with a toddler and two preschoolers. The children had finished their nap and and lunch, which consisted of chicken nuggets, spinach and fish stew, rice, broccoli and milk. Seven children's files and two household member's files were reviewed today. No medications were on site for any of the children. Arrival time: 2: 30 pm Departure time: 3: 40 pm

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-60-B
Description: Based on a review of seven children's files and an interview with the provider, it was determined that two children's files did not have all of the required information. Evidence: Child A and B enrolled on 6/28/13. When parent information was updated in January 2018, the parents did not list a second emergency contact person for either child.

Plan of Correction: I will get this information from the parent.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-320-A
Description: Based on observation, it was determined that small appliances were plugged into outlets, these appliances were not being used at the time. Evidence: The Licensing Inspector observed a toaster and blender plugged into outlets, none of these appliances were being used.

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.
