Discussed the location of the posted Violation Notice.

An unannounced renewal inspection was initiated today at 11:30am. The physical plant, 3 staff files, 4 children's files, annual fire inspection, staff training, children's activities, medications, emergency procedures, drills and supplies were inspected today. There were 18 children under the supervision of 3 staff. During the inspection, children were observed participating in circle time, singing songs, preparing to go outside and playing on the playground area. The children bring in their lunches each day they are in care. The interactions between the children and staff were seen to be positive and constructive in nature. There is currently 1 staff certified in MAT (medication administration training) and 2 staff certified in First Aid and CPR. Should you have any questions, please contact me at

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.
