Comments:
An unannounced monitoring visit was conducted today between the hours of approximately 9:15 am through 12:00 pm. There were 4 children (8 points) present with the provider and an assistant. A sample of 5 children's files and 3 staff/household member's files were reviewed. The children were engaged in the following: free toy play, reading flashcards, painting, reviewing the numbers (counting, reading the word and recognizing the numeral), lunch and transition to nap time. The provider and the assistant would encourage the children to use kind words and promote that the children repeat words to promote language development. They encourage, praise and redirect the children as needed. There is ample space for the children to play and a varied supply of developmentally appropriate games and toys. Cribs, the physical space, emergency supplies, evacuation drills, attendance records, and the Emergency Preparedness Plan were reviewed. There were no medications on site today. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the violation notice. If you have any questions regarding this inspection, please contact the Licensing Inspector, Maria Robles at maria.robles-lopez@dss.virginia.gov.
