This inspection was conducted by licensing staff using an alternate remote protocol, including telephone contact, documentation review, interview, and a virtual tour of the program.

A monitoring inspection was initiated on 10/26/21 and concluded on 10/28/21. The assistant director was contacted by telephone and a virtual inspection was conducted. There were 51 children present, ranging in age from six-months to five-years-old, with 10 staff supervising. The inspector reviewed compliance in the areas of administration, staffing and supervision, programming, medication, special care and emergencies, and nutrition. A total of two child records and three staff records were reviewed. Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and a violation was documented on the violation notice issued to the program.

If you have questions regarding this inspection you may contact the Licensing Inspector, Laura Brindle, at or 540-905-2062.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-80-A
Description: Based on review of documentation and interview with the provider, the center did not maintain an accurate record of children in attendance. Evidence: During the virtual inspection there were three children present in the infant classroom, but only two children were documented on the attendance record; in the two-year-old classroom there were ten children present but 12 were documented on the attendance record.

Plan of Correction: We will remind all of the teachers that the attendance record should always be updated as children arrive and leave.


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.
