Technical Assistance:
Technical assistance was provided in the following areas of the standards: 22 VAC 40-111-60 (children's records) and 22 VAC 40-111-120B (assistant/substitute provider records).

An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed on 2/14/19 from 10:05am until 11:30am. At the time of entrance, there were 7 daycare children, plus the provider's child, in care for a total of 19 points with the provider and one assistant. A sample of 5 children's records and 3 provider/assistant/household member records were reviewed. Children were observed participating in morning activities, to include music and movement, story time and arts and crafts. Restroom and hand washing procedures were also observed. First aid and emergency supplies, documentation of emergency practice drills and required family day home postings were reviewed. The provider does not currently administer medication but is MAT certified. Medication is not administered to children in care at this time and the provider stated there have been no accidents or injuries since the last inspection. One violation in the area of administration is identified on the violation report and was discussed with the provider during the exit interview.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-100-A
Description: Based on record review and interview, the provider did not ensure that documentation of a physical examination by or under the direction of a physician was obtained prior to a child's attendance or within 30 days after the first day of attendance. Evidence: 1. The record for child 1 does not contain documentation of a physical examination. Child 1 has a date of enrollment of 9/18/17 and was in care on the day of the inspection. 2. The record for child 2 does not contain documentation of a physical examination. Child 2 has a date of enrollment of 9/18/17 and was in care on the day of the inspection. 3. The provider confirmed that the records for child 1 and child 2 were lacking documentation of a physical examination.

Plan of Correction: The provider will ask the parents for copies of the most recent physical examination for child 1 and child 2, which will be placed in the children's records.


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.
