The Licensing Inspector conducted an unannounced investigation and a monitoring inspection on 8/8/2018 from 12:20pm to 4:30pm in response to a complaint that was received by the licensing office on 7/30/2018, regarding supervision of children and procedures for emergencies. Based on interviews, records reviewed, and observations, it was determined that there was not a preponderance of evidence to support the allegation regarding supervision; however, the complaint was deemed valid with regards to procedures for emergencies. A complaint related violation and non-related violations are identified in the Violation Notice. During the inspection, there were 125 children (infants-10yrs.) directly supervised by 52 staff. The physical plant, 5 staff records, 5 children?s records, medications, evacuation drills, injury reports, emergency supplies, and policies were inspected. Children were observed participating in group play, completing worksheets, working with small manipulative materials, playing table games and eating snack. Today's snack consisted of celery, peppers, carrots and ranch. Hand-washing procedures were also observed. There was an abundant supply of materials for the children. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the Violation Notice. If you have any questions regarding this inspection, please contact the Licensing Inspector, Maria Soto at or (571) 835-5058.

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.
