Licensing inspector discussed developing a plan for non-communicable diseases with director.
An unannounced investigation was conducted on 08/08/2018 in response to a complaint regarding special care provisions/ emergencies and physical plant. During the investigation, 8 staff members and 3 parents were interviewed and documentation was reviewed. The preponderance of evidence does not support the allegation; therefore, the complaint is deemed not valid. The exit interview was conducted with the director.

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.
