The daily schedules accurately reflected the activities provided and the posted menu identified the lunch served on this date (spaghetti, green beans, applesauce and milk). Observed staff/child interactions were positive and supportive of children's growth and development. The facility was observed to be clean and supplied with a variety of age/stage appropriate learning and play materials/toys. Children's artwork/crafts were displayed in the classrooms. Program observation was completed. Activities provided on this date included: infant care; indoor play; outdoor play; restroom, diapering and handwashing procedures; lunch; naptime; and arrival of school-age children.

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.
