Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Description: Based on the review of four children's records, two records did not contain the required information. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed the record for Child #1 (enrollment date 09/21/15) and Child #4 (enrollment date 01/21/16) did not contain documentation of an annual record review. The record for Child #4 did not contain the physical address for the two emergency contacts listed in the record. The record for Child #4 did not contain written agreements between the parent and the center which included authorization for emergency medical care should an emergency occur when the parent cannot be located immediately unless the parent states in writing an objection to the provision of such care on religious or other grounds; a statement that the center will notify the parent when the child becomes ill and that the parent will arrange to have the child picked up as soon as possible if so requested by the center; and a statement that the parent will inform the center within 24 hours or the next business day after his child or any member of the immediate household has developed any reportable communicable disease.

Plan of Correction: We will get the files up to date and corrected.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A
Description: Based on review of three staff records, one record did not contain the required information. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed the record for Staff #1 (hire date 09/12/13) did not contain documentation of one of the two character references required to be obtained prior to staff beginning employment. The record for Staff #1 did not contain documentation of orientation being completed before Staff #1 assuming job responsibilities.

Plan of Correction: These items were corrected while the licensing inspector was on site.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation, the facility did not ensure all equipment was maintained in a safe and operable condition. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed a small red plastic chair located in the Threes/Fours classroom that contained cracks in the seat creating a pinching hazard.

Plan of Correction: We discarded the chair during the inspection. It must have happened this morning because the chair has not been cracked before, but is now thrown out.


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.
