An unannounced subsidy health and safety inspection was completed on July 25, 2017. The purpose of this visit was to measure compliance with some but not all, of the subsidy requirements. There were 30 children, 18 months to school age, in care at the time of the inspection. There were 4 staff members that were working with the children in their separate groups. All groups were within the proper ratio. Children in the toddler through preschool groups had just finished lunch and were preparing for nap. The school age children were eating a lunch of chicken nuggets, corn, fruit cocktail, graham crackers and milk. Staff was observed interacting with the children and providing assistance when needed. All areas of the center including classrooms, hallways, bathrooms and playgrounds were inspected. The following information was reviewed: fire and shelter-in-place drills, liability insurance policy, parent agreements, and staff training information.

During the inspection, 5 children's records and five staff records were reviewed.

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.
