Technical Assistance:

An announced initial family day home inspection was conducted on Wednesday, April 17, 2018 from approximately 9:45AM until 12:00PM. There were three non-resident children in care during the inspection. The provider has requested a license to provide care for 12 children, from birth to 12 years of age. A complete walk through inspection of the home and outdoor areas was conducted with the provider. The background checks for the provider and family members were reviewed during the inspection.

The family day home provider?s house is a split level home. The majority of care and supervision of children will take place in the playroom, kitchen, downstairs den for sleeping, and downstairs bathroom. A sufficient number of toys and equipment was observed located in the home for the requested number of children. Food will be provided for the children and a weekly menu was reviewed during the inspection. A crib is provided for the infant in care and meets current standards. The provider also provides mats for the children to sleep on along with top and bottom linens. During the inspection, children were observed playing with toys, eating snack, playing outside, working puzzles, taking bathroom breaks and washing their hands. The provider stated medication will not be administered at this time. Transportation will not be provided at this time. Requirements for transportation were reviewed during the inspection. During the inspection, the licensing inspector reviewed emergency plans, parent information, required provider training, emergency supplies and required postings.

The provider has submitted all of the required application materials at this time. Though, some standards of care could not be determined during the initial study, the provider is in substantial compliance with the standards that could be determined. A recommendation for a six-month conditional license will be made at this time. During the conditional period, the provider will be subject to unannounced licensing inspections, with the first inspection taking place within the first sixty days of licensure. Please contact Lynn Powers at (804) 662-9790 if you have any questions regarding this inspection.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-770
Description: Based on observation, the provider did not ensure a working battery-operated weather band radio was present in the home. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector asked to see the battery-operated weather band radio. The radio that was present in the home was not a weather band radio.

Plan of Correction: I will buy a weather band radio.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-500-C
Description: Based on observation, the provider did not ensure stationary outdoor playground equipment was not placed over a hard surface. Evidence: During the inspection of the outdoor play area, the licensing inspector observed the end of the two slide chutes and the swings located on the outdoor playground equipment were over dirt. Grass was also around the playground equipment but the grass had been worn away at the end of the slide chutes and underneath the swings.

Plan of Correction: I will obtain material to place under the playground equipment.


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.
