An unannounced Subsidy Health and Safety Inspection was conducted with the center director and center staff. A licensing inspection was also conducted on this date (see separate report for details). Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in the licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. There are currently 4 staff employed at the facility. All staff have documentation of the mandatory VA Pre-service Training and are currently certified in first aid and CPR. There is one child with diagnosed food allergies currently enrolled - please request an allergy action plan from the parent. Reminder: evacuation drills are required monthly, shelter in place drills are required twice a year, and a lockdown drill is required once a year. Lockdown drills are to isolate children and staff from a security threat; shelter in place is to protect children from a natural or manmade threat.
If you have any questions regarding this inspection, please contact me at If you have specific questions regarding the subsidy program, visit our website at

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.
