Thank you for your time and assistance with the unannounced monitoring inspection conducted on March 12, 2020. The on-site inspection was from 12:11 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. On this date, there were 94 children present in seven classrooms and in the care of fourteen staff members. Three administration members were available to assist if needed. The total enrollment for the program was 140 children. The exceptions to compliance were noted on the violation notice and the risks ratings were noted on the supplemental page. There were five staff members' records and nine children's records reviewed. Seven classrooms were toured and observations were made in three of those rooms. Eight staff members and six children were interviewed. No medication is being administered. 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, updated emergency preparedness plan and injury prevention plan, asbestos management plan, outdoor play, transitions, circle time, singing, infant care, lunch, 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).

Please contact your licensing inspector, Chrystal King, if you have questions concerning this inspection, the licensing standards, and/or if I may be of assistance to you at 804-297-4469.

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.
