An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on 08/13/2015 from 9:05am - 11:10am. During the inspection there were 109 children ages 2 months to 12 years old in care with 25 staff. A tour of the facility was conducted and children were observed in a variety of activities in the classrooms including a singing, dancing, story time, reading, arts and crafts, playing with blocks and puzzles and sensory activities, and playing outside. Records were reviewed for seven children and five staff. Medication was reviewed along with emergency procedures and emergency supplies. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice, and were discussed during the exit interview. Please complete the ?plan of correction? and ?date to be corrected? for each violation cited on the violation notice and return it to me within 10 calendar days from today. You will need to specify how the deficient practice will be or has been corrected. Just writing the word ?corrected? is not acceptable. Your plan of correction must contain: 1) steps to correct the noncompliance with the standard(s), 2) measures to prevent the noncompliance from occurring again; and 3) person(s) responsible for implementing each step and/or monitoring any preventive measure(s).

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-140-A
Description: Based on a review of seven children's records, it was determined that the facility did not ensure that each child in attendance had a completed physical within one month of attendance. Evidence: 1. The record for child#3 (date of enrollment 8/20/14) did not contain documentation of a physical examination. 2. Staff #6 reviewed the record for child #3, and confirmed that the physical examinations had not been received for child #3.

Plan of Correction: The missing physical form was an oversight on the administration's part. The mother was contacted at the time of the inspection and the child has an appointment next week to complete a physical form. The administration will change the way files are audited to ensure that oversights like this are not missed.


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.
