NOVA KinderCare Learning Center
1227 North Ivy Street
Arlington, VA 22201
(703) 527-2288

Current Inspector: Ann Dramstad (703) 314-0860

Inspection Date: Sept. 4, 2015 and Oct. 8, 2015

Complaint Related: Yes

Areas Reviewed:
22VAC40-191 Background Checks (22VAC40-191)

Technical Assistance:
Based on interviews with staff and center management, it is recommended that shadowing and one-on-one support be given to a child currently enrolled in the preschool classroom if the child continues to act out and hurt herself or the group. The center has a behavior management policy in place with the family and will need to enforce the plan as the "group" must be protected as well as trying to provider support to an individual child. Behavior guidance for children who demonstrate aggressive behavior problems should always be constructive in nature and try to redirect the child, encourage decision making and foster positive interactions.

An allegation was received to the Fairfax Licensing Office concerning care of children. The local DSS agency and County Police were part of the investigation. Based on interviews and reports with multiple staff, the preponderance of evidence does not support the allegation. A non-complaint related violation was cited. Areas of non-compliance are identified in this report. Please sign and date the report and return it to me within 10 calendar days from date of receipt. If you have any questions regarding the inspection, please feel free to contact me. The Provider's responses for the "Description Of Action To Be Taken" were not received as of 11/4/2015 and will not appear on the Violation Notice. Thank you Ann Dramstad Licensing Inspector 703-314-0860

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.
