Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 11:15am-1:15pm. There were 44 children in care with 6 staff members. The children were observed participating in individual learning activities, singing songs, washing hands, toileting, playing outside, and eating their lunches that they brought from home. A sample of 4 children's records, 5 staff records, emergency materials, evacuation drills, the first aid kit, 6 emergency medications, and the physical plant were reviewed. The 3 classrooms observed were organized and neat. If you have any questions, please contact me at shahana.green@dss.virginia.gov . Thank you.
