Comments:
A renewal inspection was completed today at a new location for this center. All of the inside of the center and the outside of the center were inspected. Center staff had prepared for children to attend in person (they have been attending virtually) by having all the required emergency supplies, toys, cots, cleaning supplies and other supplies to be able to open. Two children's records and two staff records were reviewed previously by email. The playground is in the process of being completed (fencing, mulch) and the head start director stated it would not be used until completed which should be before children enter care in December. Covid-19 Essential Guidance for Child Care programs have been reviewed with the director. The information gathered during the inspection determined no violations with the applicable standards or law. No violations were issued. Please call your inspector at 276-698-9981 with any questions.

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.
