Discussion of the subsidy regulations and how they apply to the Child Day Center (CDC). Some of the newer regulations that went into effect on October 17, 2019 were reviewed once more with the administration of the child day center.

Comments:
A Subsidy Health and Safety (SHSI) inspection was conducted at the Goddard School located in Ashburn, Virginia. This inspection was conducted on 05/16/2019, between the hours of 10 am through 4 pm to review supplemental health and safety requirements. An Unannounced Renewal Inspection was also conducted on this date; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that were not covered in licensing standards were reviewed during this supplemental inspection. Violations were found during the supplemental subsidy health and safety inspection requirements and were identified on the violation notice. If you should have any questions, please call or e-mail. Thank you. Charlie Perkins, Licensing Inspector (703) 309-3963
