Comments:
The Licensing Inspector conducted an unannounced complaint inspection ifrom 7:25 am -10:30 am in response to complaints that were received by the licensing office on July 30, 2019 and July 31, 2019. Interviews were conducted with staff relating to the allegations of classrooms being out of ratio. Staff attendance sign in forms, children attendance forms and children diapering schedules for July 29, 2019, July 30, 2019 and July 31, 2019 were reviewed. The information gathered during this investigation supports the allegations, so the complaint is determined to be valid. The violation notice was reviewed with the Infant teacher who is also acting as director until the new center Director starts on August 19th. If you have any questions you may contact me at Margaret.allworth@dss.virginia.gov or 703-209-3521.
