In the Early Preschool 1 room, the children were observed in two separate groups while they interacted with peers and staff. A group of children was observed playing and learning about different instruments and another "digging for treasures" at a sensory table. The Early Preschool 2 class was observed in the playground and during transitions. The staff were observed doing name-to-face checks as the children moved from one location to the next one.

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.
