During the inspection, licensing representative discussed with provider discussions to initiate with parents of children with suspected allergies.

A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on 11/3/2017 to review supplemental health and safety requirements. Inspector arrived at 11:15am and departed at 2:00pm. Inspector observed children engaged in a variety of activities including toy play, hand washing, lunch, storytime and naptime. Children were also engaged in socially interactive activities in both English and Spanish. Provider offered positive guidance and redirection when needed. 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 requirements and are identified on the violation notice. If you have any questions please contact me at or 571.835.5505.

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.
