Technical Assistance:
Today we discussed that at 12 months of age, if the child is developmentally ready, they may transition to sleeping on a cot or mat. Until then they must sleep in a crib. Mesh sided cribs may not be the designated sleep space for infants but can be utilized as a play area.

An unannounced monitoring inspection to review licensing standards for the renewal of the Family Day Home License was conducted on 12/2/19 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:40 p.m.
There were 3 children present, 8 months to 4 years old, for a total of 9 points, in care with the provider. The records sample size consisted of 3 children?s records and 2 provider / household member records. Children were observed watching a children?s program, washing hands, eating lunch (macaroni with beef, green beans, grapes, milk) and settling down for rest time. Restroom procedures and food service were also observed today. The vendor states that no medication is administered to children in care at this time. The provider stated that children are not routinely transported in a vehicle while in care. Children play outdoors in the front lawn with direct supervision and close proximity of the provider. One minor injury report was reviewed during the inspection today.
Thank you for your time during today's inspection.


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.
