An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on January 30, 2020 from approximately 9:30 AM to 11:15 AM to determine the center's compliance with licensing standards. The director was present for the inspection. The child to staff ratios were deemed in compliance with licensing standards. There were 12 preschool children in care at the time of the inspection. There was one staff member and two working parent volunteers working directly with the children. The licensing inspector observed children participating in a variety of activities. The staff and parent volunteers were observed to be engaged with the children in age appropriate activities and to be meeting the needs of the children in care. Children bring their own lunch from home. A snack is provided by the facility. All areas of the facility including classrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, hallways, and outdoor play area were inspected. The facility had the following posted: license, last inspection, emergency numbers, evacuation maps/procedures, daily schedule, menu, and various parent information. Medications and medical authorizations were reviewed. There were several staff and/or parent volunteers on site with current MAT, Daily Health Observation, CPR and First Aid certifications.

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.
