During the inspection, children were playing with musical instruments, reviewing colors and shapes, coloring, working puzzles, reading, getting diapers changes, bathroom breaks, washing hands, eating lunch and napping. Children's equipment, learning materials, indoor and outdoor space, restrooms, first aid kit and the nonmedical emergency supplies were reviewed. Medication is administered and medication, authorization forms and allergy plans were reviewed. Five children's records and five staff records, annual fire and health inspections, fire drill, shelter in place drill and lockdown drill logs, daily attendance and all required postings were reviewed.

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.
