A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was completed on January 25, 2019, from approximately 1:00p.m. to 3:45p.m. to review supplemental health and safety requirements. 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 was one citation for a violation of the Subsidy Vendor Requirements for Family Day Homes.

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 and are identified on the violation notice.

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.
