Technical Assistance:
A supplemental page was provided.

Thank you for your time and assistance with the unannounced renewal inspection conducted today, May 16, 2019. The on-site inspection was from 11:30a.m. to 1:55p.m. The provider was caring for three children and one resident child. (9 points). There were a total of four non-resident children enrolled in the program. The exception to compliance was noted on the violation notice and the risk rating was listed on the supplemental page. There were five children's records reviewed along with the record of the provider. Two household members records were reviewed for updates. There were no medications on-site or currently being administered, which is the policy of the provider. The children brought their lunches from home, and morning and afternoon snacks are provided by the provider. Some of the items reviewed and observed included: documentation of evacuation and shelter-in-place drills, refrigerator and freezer temperatures, snack menu, attendance record, required posted information, injury reports, behavioral guidance, outdoor play, hand washing and bathroom procedures, diaper changing procedures, lunch, outside story time, and nap time. Please contact your licensing inspector, Diann Reed, if you have questions concerning this inspection, the licensing standards, and/or if I may be of assistance to you (540) 280-0742.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-840-A
Description: Based on review of one injury report and confirmation from the provider, the provider failed to complete an injury report for one child with all of the required information. Evidence: 1. The record for Child #1 contained an injury report dated 02/06/2019 that did not contain the date and time the parent of the child was notified and the method used for notification. 2. The provider verified that the not all of the required information was contained in the report.

Plan of Correction: I had the parent sign the report on the day of the incident and will complete the missing information. For future injury reports, I will make sure all of the required information is completed.


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.
