An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed on January 25, 2019, from approximately 1:00p.m. to 3:45p.m. Three children were in attendance, ages twenty-three months to three years old, for a total of seven points. The children were observed interacting with the provider during toileting, hand washing, play time and nap time. The physical environment and equipment and the first aid kit and emergency supplies were inspected. Five children?s records, two caregiver records, one household member's record, the emergency preparedness and response plan, fire drill, shelter in place and lock down drill logs, daily attendance and required postings were reviewed. There were no injury reports to review. The provider was available for interview, the inspection and the exit interview at which time inspection findings were reviewed. There were three citations for violations of the Standards for Family Day Homes. See the violation notice on the Department's public web site for violations of the Standards.

Child #1's record lacked documentation of written notification regarding whether or not the provider has liability insurance in force on the family day home. 2.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-180-A

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.
