Comments:
A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on 10/12/2017 to review supplemental health and safety requirements. There were 21 children, ages 4 months- 5 years, and 4 staff providing direct care and supervision present during today's inspection. The inspector reviewed 5 children's records and 6 staff records during the inspection. There is no medication being administered at this facility. The children were observed in the following activities: circle time, free choice/center play, bottle feeding, lunch and nap. Diapering was also observed during the inspection. The inspector reviewed the emergency preparedness plans at today's inspection. The following was discussed with staff during the inspection: ensuring all staff completes the Virginia Preservice Training, CPR and First-Aid within 90 day of vendor approval, procedures for moving children to older age groups, and staff training. A licensing inspection was also conducted this date; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. Violations were found during the supplemental subsidy health and safety inspection and are identified on the violation notice. The inspector arrived at 9:05 a.m. and departed at 2:20 p.m. Thank you for your time today. If you have any questions, please contact Becky Forestier at 540-309-2835.

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.
