Comments:
An unannounced non-mandated monitoring inspection was conducted from 9:50am to 11:40am. The purpose of this visit was to assess the day to day operations of the family day home and previous violations. There were 5 day care children (12 points) and 3 (over the age of 10 years) resident children present with three caregivers. The children were observed playing with blocks, singing songs and watching a children's show on TV. 5 children's records and 2 household member records were reviewed. Emergency drill records were current and attendance records were reviewed. There were no medications on site. Areas of non compliance are listed in the Violation notice. For any questions regarding this inspection, please contact me at mahrukh.aziz@dss.virginia.gov or 571-835-4718.
