Technical Assistance:
Discussion was held on the topics of current enrollment, current staffing, and the possibility of moving the child care area from the basement to a different location within the Family Day Home (FDH).

The following inspection took place between the hours of 8 am through 11 am. Today, I met with the Provider on site at the Family Day Home (FDH) located in Sterling, Virginia. At the start of this unannounced renewal inspection there were a total of 3 children (8 points) with 1 caregiver. A total of 3 children?s files, 2 staff files, and 1 household member?s file was reviewed. The children were engaged in the following: drop off, nap time, movie time, music, due to the late arrival of all children breakfast was not served on site, bathroom break, hand washing, and other organized activities. If you should have any future questions, please call or send an e-mail. Thank you. Charlie Perkins, Licensing Inspector (703) 309-3963

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.
