Thank you for your time and assistance with the announced initial inspection conducted today, June 10, 2019. The on-site inspection was held from 10:00a.m. to 1:30p.m. On this date, there were no children in the care of the provider and no children enrolled in the program. The records of the provider and one assistant/household member were reviewed. The provider will not be administering any medications at this time. The home and outside play areas were toured. There was an ample supply of toys and equipment for the children. The exception to compliance was recorded on the violation notice and the risk rating for the violation was noted on the supplemental page. Some items reviewed and observed included: required posted information, refrigerator and freezer temperature, emergency supplies, first-aid kit, warm water temperature, and daily attendance record. A recommendation will be made to issue a conditional family day home license with a capacity of 12 children and an age range of 2 years through 12 years. Please contact your 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 #: 22VAC40-111-770
Description: Based on observation and verification from the provider, the provider failed to have a battery-operated radio present. Evidence: 1. There was not a portable battery-operated weather band radio in the home. 2. The provider confirmed that he did not have a working radio present.

Plan of Correction: We will purchase the battery-operated weather band radio as soon as possible. We will take a picture of it and send it to the licensing inspector.


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.
