An exit interview was conducted with the director to discuss the results of today's inspection.

An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today, July 27, 2016 to determine the center's compliance with licensing standards. Upon arrival, the following ratios were observed: 2 infants/1 staff, 2 toddlers/1 staff, 8 (3-4 yr olds)/1 staff, 4 (two yr olds)/2 staff, 12 school age children/ 2 staff. Children were observed using the restroom, interacting with staff, playing with toys and board games. Today's snack consisted of veggie chips, watermelon, and 100% juice. All areas used by children were inspected to include the main hallways, children's restrooms, classroom, gymnasium, and playground.

The program had the required postings displayed on the wall upon entering the classroom. The center's first aid kit and emergency supplies were inspected with the required supplies found. Five children's and two staff records were inspected with the majority of the required information present. The following was also inspected on this day: annual fire & health inspections, fire/shelter-in-place drills, emergency preparedness plan, injury prevention plan/updates, playground safety plan, liability insurance, parent agreements, and other pertinent information.

If you have any questions regarding this inspection, contact the licensing inspector at (804) 662-9771.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-B
Description: Based on the inspection of the emergency preparedness plan the required information was not listed. Evidence: During the inspection of the emergency preparedness plan it was discovered the plan did not have primary and secondary routes of egress.

Plan of Correction: Per provider: I will update the plan to be more specific in detail regarding the primary and secondary routes of egress.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-40-D-1-A
Description: Based on the inspection of administrative records, the required background checks were not conducted.

During the inspection of board member records, it was determined that board member #1 and #2 did not have the required sworn statement or affirmation, central registry, and criminal history record check. Background checks are required on all board members and should be updated every three years.

Plan of Correction: Per director: I will immediately have the background checks sent off so they can return prior to my license expiring.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-40-D-1-C
Description: Based on the inspection of administrative records, the required background checks were not updated.

During the inspection of two staff records, staff #2 had an expired central registry check dated 2/7/12 and criminal history record check dated 3/12/12. Updated background checks are required every three years from the date of the previous record check. The background checks in the record expired in February and March of 2015.

Plan of Correction: Per director: I believe we have conducted the background checks. I will immediately call the local agencies to request a copy of these background checks.


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.
