An announced initial inspection was completed today. The physical plant (including measuring of the classroom), 5 staff files, 5 children's files, fire and health inspection, children's activities, emergency procedures, drills and supplies were inspected between 11:00am-1:30pm. There were 6 children under the supervision of 2 staff. Today, the children had circle time, learned about the weather and the letter of the day, played outside and enjoyed free play. The children bring in their lunches and/or snacks from home each day they are in care. All of the staff are certified in MAT (medication administration training). Once the background checks are reviewed by the Licensing Inspector, the license will be issued. Should you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
