All staff must have documentation of national fingerprint background checks before supervising children. Background checks are nontransferable (i.e. school system) and must be conducted by the licensee for all staff. All childcare staff working for the licensed nursery program must have required background checks: National Fingerprinting, Sworn Statement and Central Registry Background Checks. Background checks must be repeated every five years.
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted beginning at 9:50 a.m. and ending at 12:45p.m. with the program administrator. There were four children ages three to five years old under the care and supervision of one staff. Children were observed having morning snack that is brought from home. Childcare areas, supplies and equipment were observed. The playground was not observed due to today's weather. Three children's records and three staff records were reviewed. There are no medications on site. A medication administration training (MAT) certified staff would be required for medication administration.

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.
