Comments:
The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced monitoring inspection from 9:00am - 12:30pm. There were twenty seven children in care ages 2 years - 5 years with five staff supervising. The children were observed playing in the centers, at circle time, playing dress-up, coloring and during lunch. Five staff's records and five children's records were reviewed. Violations from the previous inspection were also reviewed and all had been corrected. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice. If you have any questions, please contact your licensing inspector at (276) 608-3758. Thank you or your cooperation.

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.
