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 4/30/21 and concluded on 5/12/21. The program director was contacted to initiate the virtual, remote inspection. There were 14 children present with 2 staff. The inspector reviewed a list of items required to complete the inspection. The inspector reviewed 3 children?s and 3 staff records during the virtual, remote inspection 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.

Violations:

Evidence:
