An exit interview was conducted with the provider to discuss the results of today's inspection. Consultation was given regarding updated training certification in First Aid/CPR and MAT.

An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today, March 12, 2019 to determine the provider's compliance with licensing standards. The inspection was initiated at 12:00pm and concluded at approximately 2:00pm. In attendance were three children totaling nine points being supervised by the provider. Children were observed completing worksheets, using the restroom, eating lunch, and preparing for nap time. Today's lunch consisted of sunflower butter sandwich (wheat bread), string beans, grapes, and milk. Children's books, toys, and equipment were inspected and found to be age appropriate and in operable condition. The children's restroom was inspected with the required supplies present. All rooms of the home used by children and front yard used for outdoor play were inspected.

The family day home had the required postings displayed in the living room and in the children's room. The required first aid kit, fire extinguisher, and emergency supplies were available. Five children's records and household member records were inspected with the required information present. The following was also inspected on this day: required postings, daily attendance, daily schedule, fire drill/shelter-in-place log, parent agreements, and other pertinent information.

If you have any questions regarding today's inspection, contact the licensing inspector at (804) 662-9771.

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.
