An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on September 11, 2017 between the hours of 10:18 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Forty-two (42) children were in the care of six staff members during the on site inspection. One additional staff member was present and able to assist, as needed. Five children's records were reviewed and five staff records were reviewed and/or updated.

Lunches and snacks were provided by the children's parents. The facility was observed to be clean and supplied with a variety of age/stage program specific learning and play materials. Program observation was completed. Activities observed on this date included: clean-up and group time in the 2 and 3-year-old classroom (morning greeting, songs and story); outdoor play; handwashing and restroom procedures; lunch; naptime and departure/pick-up of children.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-160-C
Description: Based on review and/or update of five staff records and discussion with staff on September 11, 2017, the program failed to ensure one staff member submitted the results of a follow-up tuberculosis screening at least two years from the date of the first initial screening or testing. Evidence: 1. Update of staff #1's record, on this date, determined that the most recent TB screening was completed on 8/31/2015. 2. Staff #1 verified the date of the most recent TB screening report.

Plan of Correction: An updated TB screening report will be obtained.


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.
