An unannounced complaint investigation was conducted today between 10:30am to 12:40pm. The inspection was conducted in response to a complaint that was received by the licensing office on 7/6/18. The complaint was related to a child getting bit on two different occasions, and that an incident report was not provided in a timely manner. The complaint was also related to the preschool classroom being over ratio. Interviews were conducted with staff. Staff and children records were reviewed. The information gathered during this investigation does not support the allegations, so the complaint is determined to be not valid. Violations not related to the complaint have been cited and are listed in the Violation Notice. If you have any questions, please contact me at or 571-835-4718.

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.
