Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 8:45am-11:50am. At the time of entrance, 72 children were in care with 21 staff members present. Children were observed during snack time, working on a penguin worksheet, playing with trains, computers, puzzles, legos, looking at rocks with a magnifying glass, art activities, reading books, diaper changes, washing hands and bottle feeding. A selection of staff and children records, the physical space, emergency supplies, evacuation drills, attendance records, medications and the Emergency Preparedness Plan were reviewed. Interactions between the children and staff were positive. The center is clean and organized. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the violation notice. Please contact me if you have any questions at Stacy.Doyle@dss.virginia.gov or 571- 835-0386.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A

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.
