Today an unannounced Monitoring Inspection took place between the hours of 11:15am and 2:00pm.

The children were observed playing outside on the playgrounds, playing ball and other organized activities. The infants and toddlers were observed eating lunch and taking naps.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at Thank you for your cooperation during this inspection.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-430-C
Description: Based on observation, recalled equipment was used. Evidence: An infant was observed sitting in an original bumbo seat that did not contain the safety belt. These seats were recalled in August of 2012.

Description: Based on observation, over-the-counter skin products were kept beyond their expiration date. Evidence: Child #6's diaper cream expired 8/2018. Child #7's diaper cream expired 12/2018.

Plan of Correction: Teacher's will need to check the expiration dates of the creams. I'll throw out the ones in the room now.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-F
Description: Based on observation, the centers did not follow the most recent, age-appropriate nutritional requirements of a recognized authority such as the Child and Adult Care Food Program of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Evidence: The USDA requires that children be served a vegetable with lunch. Today's lunch was pancakes, a sausage patty, mandarin oranges and milk. The children were not served a vegetable.

Plan of Correction: I've already followed up with the Fairfax Food Service who cater's our food. I've provided them with USDA contact information.


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.
