Technical Assistance:
An exit interview was conducted with the provider to discuss the results of today's inspection. Consultation was given regarding accessing the department's website for updated information and additional forms.

Comments:
An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today, October 18, 2019 to determine the provider's compliance with licensing standards. The inspection was initiated at 1:45pm and concluded approximately 3:30pm. In attendance were 4 children totaling 11 points being supervised by the provider. Children were observed playing with toys, using the restroom, watching an educational program, and interacting with provider. Children's books, toys, and equipment were inspected and found to be age appropriate and in operable condition. All rooms of the home and outdoor areas were inspected with no hazards found.

The family day home had the required postings displayed on the wall upon entering the children's room. The first aid kit, fire extinguisher, and emergency supplies were inspected. Four children's records and provider records were inspected with the majority of the required information found. The following was also inspected: fire drill log, shelter-in-place log, parent agreements, emergency preparedness plan, daily attendance log, and other pertinent information.

If you have any questions regarding today's inspection, contact the licensing inspector at (804) 662-9771.

Note: The provider has moved to a new location in which the entire home was inspected including outdoor areas to modify the license.
