The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced renewal inspection, at which play groups, group time, activities, story time, personal hygiene, and lunch time were observed. Children were observed; and staff and children files and other documentation were reviewed. Twenty-one (21) children, aged 8 months-4 years, were found to be in care with 3 staff, kitchen staff, and administrative staff. Please contact me if you need further assistance. Thank you for your cooperation. This inspection began at 9 am and concluded at 11:45 am.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A Description: Based on review of the areas used by the children the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to the blinds on the doors.
In the 2 year old class the blinds on the door going outside were broken and posed a hazard to the children in care.
Plan of Correction: Maintenance has already been notified and new blinds will be installed as soon as they are obtained. In the mean time the blinds were pulled up so that the children do not have access to the broken areas.

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.
