This inspection was conducted by licensing staff using an alternate remote protocol, necessary due to a state of emergency health pandemic declared by the Governor of Virginia.

A focused monitoring inspection was conducted on 12/20/2020 with an exit interview on 12/14/2020. The director was contacted by telephone and a virtual inspection was conducted. There were 41 children present with 13 staff supervising. The Inspector reviewed three children's records and seven staff records as well as enhanced hand washing and cleaning and sanitizing of toys, surfaces, and playground equipment. The information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with standards that are documented on the violation notice issued to the facility.

The Licensing Inspector has reviewed with the provider COVID-19 Essential Guidance for Child Care programs. If you have further questions about this inspection please contact Donna Liberman at 540-359-5244 or

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.
