An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 9:00 - 11:00 am with the center director and staff. There were 13 children upon the LI's arrival, ranging from nine months to 11 years of age, present with 3 staff supervising. Children were observed creating an edible arts and crafts project ("ant hills"), participating in structured circle time activities, listening to stories read by a volunteer grandmother and eating lunch, which is brought from home. Five children's records were reviewed and in compliance. Three staff records were reviewed. Required information was posted. The last fire drill was conducted: 7/10/19 and the last shelter-in-place drill was conducted: 5/20/19. One medication was reviewed; the director has current Medication Administration Training (MAT) certification.

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.
