The crib had a label of "do not use" on it and it was not in use at the time of inspection.

The following inspection took place between the hours of 10 am through 3 pm. Today, I met with the Staff of Your Child's Place located in Vienna, Virginia. At the start of this unannounced renewal inspection there were a total of 66 children with 11 staff (within the 2 buildings); good ratios in all 7 rooms. A total of 6 children?s files and 6 staff files were reviewed.

If you should have any future questions, please call or send an e-mail. Thank you. Charlie Perkins, Licensing Inspector (703) 309-3963
