Comments:
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 monitoring inspection was initiated on May 7, 2021 and concluded on May 11, 2021. The director was contacted by telephone to initiate the inspection. There were 3 children and 4 staff present during the remote inspection as the program is currently closed. However, the program offers distance learning. The inspector emailed the director/provider a list of items required to complete the inspection. The Inspector reviewed 3 children records and 2 staff records submitted by the facility to ensure documentation was complete. Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance(s) with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the facility.
