Comments:
An announced initial inspection was conducted on 01/06/2020 from 10:35am to 2:20pm. Based on the square footage and restroom facilities the center can accommodate 168 children. The center is requesting a licensed capacity for 168 children ages 6 weeks through 12 years.
The program will offer morning snack, afternoon snack and a late snack to children in care.
Medication will be administered.
Transportation will be provided.
The center has submitted all of the required application materials at this time. During the inspection, compliance with some standards could not be determined since the center is not yet in operation. Compliance with these standards will be determined during unannounced visits once the program is in operation. Though some standards of care could not be determined during the initial study, the center is in substantial compliance with the standards that could be determined.

If you have any questions about this inspection, please contact your licensing inspector, Kandra Brown, at (804) 662-9038.
