Thank you for your time and assistance with the unannounced monitoring inspection conducted on March 10, 2020. The on-site inspection was from 9:15 a.m. to 3:24 p.m. On this date, there were 61 children in the care of ten staff among six classrooms. The program director was also available to assist, if needed. The total enrollment for the program was 82 children. The exceptions to compliance were noted on the violation notice and the risks ratings were noted on the supplemental page. Five staff members' records and eight children's records were reviewed. Seven classrooms were toured and observations were made in three of those rooms. The program director, four staff, and four children were interviewed. No medication is being administered at this time. All interactions between children and staff were age appropriate and positive. Some items that were reviewed and observed included: required posted information, injury reports, documentation of evacuation, shelter-in-place, and lockdown drills, emergency supplies, first aid kit, warm water temperature, art activities, circle time, reading station, hand washing and bathroom procedures, transitions, outside play, snack, and nap time.

Please complete the ?plan of correction? and ?date to be corrected? for each violation cited on the violation notice and return it to me within 10 calendar days from today. You will need to specify how the deficient practice will be or has been corrected. Just writing the word ?corrected? is not acceptable. Your plan of correction must contain: 1) steps to correct the noncompliance with the standard(s), 2) measures to prevent the noncompliance from occurring again; and 3) person(s) responsible for implementing each step and/or monitoring any preventive measure(s).

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.

Virginia Quality is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for early care and education facilities serving children ages birth through pre-K.
