Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A
Description: Based on direct observations, the Provider failed to ensure areas and furnishings of the family day home were maintained in a clean, safe, and operable condition. Evidence: The smoke detector located on the main level in the child care room was not in full operable condition. The battery in the smoke detector was making a chirping sound as an alert to indicate the unit's battery was low and needed to be changed.

Plan of Correction: The battery in the smoke detector will be replaced with a new battery.


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.
