An unannounced renewal study was conducted with the director, who was present with 19 staff who were providing supervision to 86 children , from 4 months to 6 years of age. The infants were napping or crawling around on the floor, while the the toddlers/ two's were eating their morning snack ( milk and graham crackers) and the older children were practicing their singing for the Winter Concert. Six medications for four children were reviewed as well as 12 injuries/accident reports. Six staff and seven children's files were reviewed today as well.

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.
