An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today, January 20, 2016 to check the facility for compliance with licensing standards. The inspector arrived at 2:00 pm and concluded the inspection at 4:00 pm. Upon the inspector arrival children were napping. Today the two classrooms were combined for nap. Soft music was playing in the background. Later children were observed having snack. Staff sat with children and converse with children in a positive manner. Children listened to a story and due to inclement weather, children watched a video rather then going out to play on the playground. The classrooms were decorated with children's art and had age and stage appropriate materials. All areas of the facility to include classrooms, bathrooms, hallways, playground and the basement were inspected. The facility has requested that the basement area be added to the usable space for the facility. The facility had the license, last inspection notice, emergency numbers, emergency evacuation procedures/maps, daily schedule and various parent information. The first aid kit and the non-medical emergency supplies were inspected and found complete. The inspector interacted with staff and children in care. Two staff records and eleven children's records were reviewed. Staff have current CPR, First Aid and daily health observation training. One staff has current MAT certification. Medication authorizations were reviewed. The most recent evacuation drill was on 12/29/2015. The two required shelter-in-place drills for 2015 were completed on 11/16/2015 and 12/29/2015. Children provide their own meals, which we labeled with their name and date. Injury reports were reviewed. Today's Ratio's: Seven children with two staff. Fire Inspection: 06/02/2015 Health 03/11/2015 The violations from the previous inspection on November 19, 2015 were checked for corrections. There were no repeat violations cited during today's inspection. A complete renewal inspection will need to be submitted before the license expiration in order for the renewal to be processed. If you have questions regarding this inspection, please contact the licensing inspector at 804-662-9758.

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.
