Licensing Inspector conducted a Subsidy Health and Safety Inspection from approximately 11:45am to 4:45pm.

The sample size was eight staff records and four children's records.

Evidence: The center had not posted an allergy indicated in the record for Child #1 and the center had not obtained parental permission to post an allergy of Child #4.

Plan of Correction: We will notify parents to write a letter stating it is ok to have the allergies posted for Child #4. I will put Child #1 on the allergy list and notify the parent.

Description: Based on review, the vendor did not maintain a written record (hard copy) of daily attendance that documents the arrival and departure of each child in care as it occurs.

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.
