A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on 10/19/18 from 9:55am to 12:00pm to review supplemental health and safety requirements. At the time of entrance there were four children ages two years old to four years old in care with two caregivers present. Children were observed playing inside and doing learning activities. Records were reviewed for five children and three caregivers. A licensing inspection was also conducted this date; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. Violations were found during the supplemental subsidy health and safety inspection requirements and are identified on the violation notice.

Standard #: VENDHOM-000-005-B
Description: Based on observation and interviews, it was determined that the vendor did not ensure that for each group of children, the vendor shall maintain a written record (hard copy) of daily attendance that documents the arrival and departure of each child in care as it occurs. Evidence: 1. The Licensing Inspector reviewed the attendance records for the facility, and the attendance records did not have the arrival and departure documented for each child in care as it occurs. 2. Caregiver#1reviewed the attendance sheet for the family day home, and acknowledged that the written record of daily attendance did not document the arrival and departure of all children in care as it occurs.

Plan of Correction: The vendor responded: I will with all caregivers and parent the attendance procedures to ensure that arrival and departure of each child is documented on the attendance sheet.


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.
