Technical Assistance:
The provider recently moved to a new home location. The license cannot be processed for renewal until the Contact with Local Zoning document is received.
Until the license is renewed, the provider is not permitted to care for more than 4 children at any one time.

This inspection was conducted by licensing staff using an alternate remote protocol, including telephone contacts, documents review, and a virtual tour of the program.

A renewal and location modification inspection was initiated and concluded on 8/16/2021. The provider was contacted by telephone and a virtual inspection was conducted. There are currently no children in care. The inspector reviewed compliance in the areas of administration, physical plant, special care and emergencies and nutrition. A total of 2 caregiver records were reviewed.

Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the program.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A
Description: Based on virtual observations, it was determined that areas and furnishings of the family day home, inside and outside, have not been maintained in a clean and safe condition.
The following areas of non-compliance were observed by the Inspector:
1 - In the nap room, one of the infant cribs has been placed next to the window that is covered by corded blinds. The crib placement is close enough to the blinds that a child could reach the blinds.
2 - The backyard needs to be mowed and all of the many long weeds need to be pulled.
3 - In the backyard, the outdoor air conditioning unit is in the children's play area. This unit can pose a safety hazard for the children.
4 - There are two fence posts lying on the ground in the backyard play area.

Plan of Correction: All of these items will be corrected before any children enter care.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-320-B
Description: Based on virtual observations, it was determined that the provider has not installed child-resistant protective covers larger than 1-1/4 inches in diameter on all unused electrical outlets accessible to children under five years of age.
The Inspector observed two electrical outlets on the wall next to the children's handwashing sink in the bathroom. These outlets were not covered.

Plan of Correction: The outlets will be covered before children enter care.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-340-C
Description: Based on virtual observations, it was determined that the children's bathroom does not contain all required items.
The children's bathroom does not contain handsoap and paper towels.

Plan of Correction: I will put the soap and paper towels in the bathroom before children enter care.


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.
