An unannounced mandated renewal inspection was conducted today at 10:00am to 11:30am. There were 6 children in care (17 points) with 3 caregivers present. Children were observed sleeping in cribs, participating in book reading, child's choice activities, and preparing to go to and playing on the outdoor playground. There were ample supplies and equipment for children. 3 staff and 1 household member's file were reviewed along with 2 children's files. Areas of non-compliance are cited on the Violation Notice. Should you have any questions regarding this inspection, please contact

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-210-A
Description: Based on record review, a caregiver did not obtain 16 hours of annual training. Evidence: Review of Staff#1's file revealed she had completed 12 of the 16 required hours for 2017.

Plan of Correction: I will make sure to complete 16 hours of training.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-350-E
Description: Based on observation, the hot water at taps were not maintained within a range of 105F to 120F. Evidence: Both sinks used for handwashing were observed to register 123.5F, which is a potential hazard for children. This was being corrected during inspection.

Plan of Correction: I will have my husband turn down the hot water heater temperature today.


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.
