Description: Based on observation, the facility failed to ensure that children under the age of 10 were always within actual sight and sound supervision of staff. Evidence: 1) Staff A was observed in the foyer outside her classroom with one infant, leaving a second infant alone in the classroom for approximately 2-3 minutes. 2) In the preschool classroom, two children were observed outside on the deck alone. Approximately 2-3 minutes later, Staff B joined the children outside, leaving 16 children inside the classroom without sight and sound supervision.

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.
