Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from approximately 11:30 am-2:30 pm. At the time of entrance, 76 children were in care directly supervised by 15 staff members. Ratios were in compliance. Children and staff were observed during bottle-feeding, lunch, cleaning, transitioning to nap time and napping. The center looked clean and organized. Improvements to the physical plant were noted like new mulch, paint had been retouched, new cabinets in some rooms and new latches for cabinets and closets. A selection of staff records, the physical space and required posted documents were reviewed at this time. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the violation notice. If you have any questions regarding this inspection, please contact the Licensing Inspector, Maria Robles at maria.robles-lopez@dss.virginia.gov.
