Comments:
Thank you for your assistance during this unannounced monitoring inspection. This on-site visit was conducted on February 26, 2019 from 11:10 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. There were ninety-one children in the care of seventeen staff in seven classrooms. No medication is being administered at the present. Nine children's records were reviewed. Thirteen staff records were reviewed and updated. Areas of non-compliance may be found on the violation notice.

Areas observed were: infant feeding, hand washing/bathroom and diapering procedures, free choice activities, music and movement, lunch, transition and nap. Interactions between the children and staff were observed as appropriate and the children seem comfortable with the daily routine and schedule.

Please contact me at 540-430-9256 if you have any questions and/or if I may be of assistance with licensing standards.
