An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today, July 3, 2019 to determine the provider's compliance with family day home standards. The inspection was initiated at 10:30 am and concluded at 1:00 pm. Upon the inspector's arrival four children were in care with one caregiver for a total of seven points. Children were observed playing with toy cars, in the playhouse and watching a children's show. Later children colored, worked in an safety activity book and discussed different safety rules. The children and caregiver completed an art project and read stories. Hand washing was conducted after toileting. Today's lunch consisted of spaghetti, chicken, cantaloup, green beans, strawberries, bread and milk. The main area used for child care and out door play space were inspected along with a walk through of the entire home. The family day home is equipped with supplies and age appropriate materials. The provider had the required information posted. The first aid kit and non-medical emergency supplies were checked and found complete. An evacuation drill was documented on 06/26/2019, an shelter-in-place drill on 01/29/2019 and a lock down drill on 01/29/2019. Children demonstrated the evacuation drill procedures for the inspector. The inspector interacted with the caregiver and children in care.

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.
