Technical Assistance:
Technical assistance today included: I strongly recommend all required items to be on the same floor as the child care so things are easily accessible to caregivers. The step on trash for diapers should be near the diapering table to prevent spread of germs. The outline of daily activities specific to age groups.

An unannounced renewal inspection took place today from 10 am - 1 pm. There were three children present with the provider and assistant for 10 points. I observed children playing with toys, eating snack and preparing for naptime. Records were well-organized and complete.
If you have any questions, please contact me at brenda.kuhlman@dss.virginia.go

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A
Description: Based on observation today, there were some areas outdoors that were not maintained in a safe condition.
The play area today had an outdoor carpet that was bunching up despite being taped, causing a tripping hazard. The bottom of the outside of the wooden fence had splintering at child height.

Plan of Correction: The outdoor carpet will be nailed to the side so it doesn't keep bunching that way. The handyman was just out there, inspecting it. I will put tape over for now. (the splintering).,

Description: Based on observation, an individual location location was not accessible today for children age two and older.
While there are separate places for children's diapers, older children's items were put into a a storage room that was accessible to children as required.

Plan of Correction: We will get a coat rack or another method to keep older children's items from home.


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.
