Technical Assistance:

An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on Friday, July 13, 2018 from approximately 11:30 AM to 1:10 PM to determine the provider's compliance with licensing standards. In attendance were two non-resident children. The children were being supervised by one caregiver during the inspection. There was a total of four points based on the children?s ages. The children were observed finishing lunch, watching children's programs on the television and resting at nap time. The child care areas were filled with supplies and toys for the children. During the inspection, the licensing inspector reviewed the following: emergency supplies including first aid kit, battery operated weather radio, emergency plan, emergency drill logs, required postings, menu and caregivers? training hours. The provider stated medications are not being administered at this time. Transportation is not provided. During the inspection three children's and one caregiver?s record and one household member?s records were reviewed. If you have any questions about this inspection, please contact the licensing inspector, Lynn Powers at (804) 662-9790.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-880
Description: Based on observation and interviews, the provider did not ensure when the family day home provides food that it follows the most recent, age-appropriate nutritional requirements of a recognized authority such as the Child and Adult Care Food Program of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

During the inspection, the licensing inspector asked the provider what was served for lunch. The provider stated she served chicken and rice and greens. When reviewing the menu, the menu for Tuesday listed lunch as being tuna fish, crackers and plums. Providers are required to serve at least two vegetables or fruits or one vegetable and one fruit.

Plan of Correction: I will start serving all of the required components at lunch.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-50-A
Description: Based on record review and interview, the provider did not maintain a written record of children in attendance each day.

During the inspection, the licensing inspector asked the provider for the daily attendance for the week. The provider stated she had not written the attendance down for the week. There were two children in care during the inspection. The provider took a blank weekly attendance sheet and added the attendance for the week to the form while the licensing inspector was on site.

Plan of Correction: I have blank attendance forms and I will make sure to complete the daily attendance forms.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-210-A
Description: Based on record review, the provider did not ensure she completed the required 16 hours of annual training.

Plan of Correction: I will make sure I complete all the required training by the renewal of my license in February 2019.

Plan of Correction: I will go to the store and buy a new mat.


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.
