Technical Assistance:
Today we discussed the lake located at the back of the property. There is a fence which separates the back yard from the lake. However, the fence does have footholds (openings in the fencing material which would allow a child to place their foot in the opening and climb over the fence). Initially, the provider will utilize the front yard for children to play outdoors. The front yard is well beyond 30 feet from the fence which separates the body of water from the back yard. Additional Technical assistance regarding the body of water will be obtained by the inspector and shared with the provider prior to the issuance of the license. 22VAC40-111-(7)-260-B A nonclimbable barrier at least four feet high A nonclimbable barrier at least four feet high such as, but not limited to, a fence or impenetrable hedge shall surround outdoor play areas located within 30 feet of drowning hazards such as, but not limited to, inground swimming or wading pools, ponds, or fountains not enclosed by safety fences. The ?contact with Zoning Office? form is pending and the application for licensure is not complete and cannot be processed until this documentation is received in the licensing office.

An announced initial inspection was conducted from 12:30 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. The provider has applied to operate a licensed family day home caring for up to 12 children between the ages of 6 weeks to 12 years of age. The applicant is currently caring for children as a voluntarily registered provider. Areas and equipment to be utilized by children in the licensed program were inspected. Required postings, emergency plans and emergency supplies were reviewed. The home, to include areas where children will be cared for, bathroom facilities, kitchen and outdoor play areas were inspected. Children were resting quietly at nap time during the inspection. Restroom procedures, hand washing. free play and afternoon snack time were also observed. The applicant states that transportation is provided for a child who attends before and after school care and that on occasion, the other children may accompany her in the vehicle with written authorization from their parent(s). Medication is not administered to children in care and there have been no accidents or injuries since the last inspection. Four enrolled children's records and 2 Provider / Assistant records were reviewed. The inspector reviewed General Procedures regarding issuance of a six month conditional license and recommendations at the conclusion of the conditional license. Please contact your licensing inspector at 757-802-5281 if you have questions.


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.
