Discussion was held on the topics of current enrollment, current staffing, and that this center and its "sister" center are under two different LLCs. Therefore, each center is separate and unto itself with separate background checks, references, and all other applicable documentation to include documentation required for all board officers.

Comments:
The following inspection took place between the hours of 8:30 am through 1:30 pm. Today, I met with the Staff of the Kiddie Academy located in Leesburg, Virginia. At the start of this unannounced monitoring inspection there were a total of 81 children observed with 17 classroom staff; good ratios in all 9 rooms. A total of 10 children?s files and 10 staff files were reviewed. The children were engaged in the following:
infant feeding, tummy time, diapering, hand washing, song, art, coloring, flash card vocabulary, cutting skills, playdoh, large motor skilled activity outside on center playground, lunch, nap time, and other organized activities. If you should have any future questions, please call or send an e-mail to charles.perkins@dss.virginia.gov. Thank you.
