Comments:
An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted with center director and center staff. There were 125 children present, ranging in age from 4 months to twelve years old, with 19 staff actively supervising. The children were engaged in age appropriate activities including making slime, story time, Legos, and outdoor play. Children ate lunches prepared from home and prepared for rest. Ten emergency medications for ten children were reviewed. Six children's files and one new staff file were reviewed - please see Supplemental Summary for missing items. There was no documentation of a current health inspection or fire inspection - please call to schedule as soon as possible as the license can not be approved without a current inspection from each agency. Time of today's inspection: 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Please call me if you have any questions 540-219-4122 or e-mail tara.barton@dss.virginia.gov.
