Reviewed placement of the findings from each inspection.

An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today. The provider was caring for 2 children, totaling 6 points. One additional child was expected to arrive later in the day. Children's records, the physical plant, caregiver:child interactions, equipment and materials, caregiver records, training, health records, children's nutrition, and emergency preparedness items were inspected today.
The provider reported that no children's medications were on site today.

The children were observed playing with toys, engaging in creative play, practicing item recognition and color recognition, and interacting with the provider. The children were to be served macaroni and cheese, spinach, and milk for lunch later today.

This inspection was completed between approximately 9:45am and 11:20am. Thank you for meeting with me today. If you have any questions regarding this inspection please email me at

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-940-C
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that the provider did not store all perishable foods to be served to children inside the refrigerator.
One parent supplies her child's food from home. The food is brought inside a thermal lunch box and kept on the counter. The Inspector observed yogurt and homemade baby food inside the lunch box. The provider did not move these perishable items from the lunch box to the refrigerator.

Plan of Correction: I will move any perishable foods to the refrigerator when the child comes each day.

Plan of Correction: I will ask the parent to have the statement signed by the doctor.

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.

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.
