An unannounced renewal inspection was completed on May 28, 2019 from approximately 10:15a.m. to 12:15p.m. Three children, ages sixteen months through three years old, were in care for a total of seven points, with two caregivers. Caregivers and children were observed in the indoor space engaged in activities to include painting, diapering, toileting, hand washing, snack time and music and movement. Interviews and interactions were conducted and no medications are given. Five children?s records, three caregiver records and one household member record were reviewed. The Provider was available for the inspection and was present at the exit interview at which time inspection findings were reviewed and an Acknowledgement of Inspection form was signed and left. See the department's public web site for violations of the Standards.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-780-B
Description: Based on a review of children?s records, the licensee failed to review with the parent annually the child?s emergency contact information to ensure the information is current for four of five children. Evidence: 1. Child #1, Child #2, Child #3 and Child #4's records, all enrolled between the years of 2013 and 2017, lacked annual reviews of the children's emergency contact information. 2. Caregiver #1 acknowledged these reviews have not been completed as required.

Plan of Correction: The provider will have all parents review their child's emergency contact information now and then begin to review all the children's information annually every February.

Plan of Correction: The provider will have Caregiver #2 obtain the TB.


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.
