Discussion was held on the topics of current enrollment, current staffing, and household files. As a reminder, Household Member #5 will need a CPS check completed prior to his 14th birthday and placed on file for future review. The following forms were given to the Provider on the date of inspection: AUTHORIZATION TO APPLY A NON-PRESCRIPTION TOPICAL SKIN PRODUCT form, Policy for the Administration of Medications form, GENERAL PERMISSION FOR REGULARLY SCHEDULED TRIPS form, the VDSS MODEL WEEKLY MENU form, and RECORD OF EMERGENCY RESPONSE DRILLS form.
The following inspection took place between the hours of 10 am through 2 pm. Today, I met with the Provider on site at the Family Day Home (FDH) located in Falls Church, Virginia. At the start of this announced initial inspection there were no children in care with the 1 caregiver. A total of 1 staff file, and 7 household member?s files were reviewed. Children's files shall be reviewed once enrollment has begun. During today's inspection a tour of the FDH was conducted. The child care area shall be located in the basement of the home. The FDH was plenty of age appropriate toys and equipment for the children to enjoy. One electric fireplace was observed. One crib will need to be replaced (see violation notice), and all standards that remain undetermined shall be reviewed at the next unannounced monitoring inspection. If you should have any future questions, please call or send an e-mail. Thank you. Charlie Perkins, Licensing Inspector (703) 309-3963
