An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted between the hours of 9:35am through 11:15am. There were a total of 6 children present (12 points) between ages 20 months and 3 years old with the Provider. A total of 4 children's files and the provider's file were reviewed. The children were engaged in the following: singing, watching a short educational video, hand washing before and after snack, eating snack which consisted of graham crackers and cheese, and playing outside with the water table. Positive interactions between the provider and children were observed during this inspection. A complete inspection of the programming space, children and staff records, evacuation drills, menu, attendance, and emergency procedures were completed today. No new staff have been hired since the last inspection. The provider advised there was no medication on site today. There was an abundant supply of age appropriate materials and toys and the home was very clean and organized. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the Violation Notice. Please contact me with any questions or concerns at

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-830-C
Description: Based on record review, documentation of emergency evacuation and shelter-in-place drills was not maintained and available for inspection. Evidence: 1. The provider stated that she has completed monthly fire drills and bi-annual shelter-in-place drills but could not find the drill log.

Plan of Correction: I will locate the drill log.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-60-B
Description: Based on record review, 3 of 4 children's records were not complete. Evidence: 1. Child #2 and Child #3's records were missing the mother and father's work address and work telephone number. 2. Child #4's record was missing the name, address, and phone number of 1 of 2 emergency contacts required. 3. Child #4's record was also missing an annual review of emergency contact information. Child #4's record was last reviewed by the parent on 5/9/18.

Plan of Correction: Child #2 and Child #3's last day is today. I'm the grandparent of Child #4 so I will get a second emergency contact and I will get the parents to review the file for emergency contacts.


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.
