Technical Assistance:
Discussion was held on the topics of current enrollment and current staffing. Discussion of the "roller coaster slide" observed on the playground. It was currently not in use, but was situated on the grass surface. Based on the resilient surfacing depth chart: a poured in place surface would need to be at least 2 inches deep or need 6 inches of wood chips for a piece of playground equipment that is 3 feet in height.

The following inspection took place between the hours of 11 am through 1:30 pm. Today, I met with the Staff of Kiddie Academy located in Centreville, Virginia. At the start of this unannounced monitoring inspection there were a total of 94 children with 16 staff; good ratios in all 6 rooms. A total of 5 children?s files and 6 new staff files were reviewed. The children were engaged in the following: learning using the white board, music, song, large motor skills on the playground, games, diaper changing, infant feeding, hand washing, bathroom breaks, art, lunch, nap time, and other organized activities. If you should have any future questions, please call. Thank you. Charlie Perkins, Licensing Inspector (703) 309-3963

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.
