A renewal inspection was initiated and concluded on April 20, 2022. The licensing inspector was on site from approximately 2:00 pm until 4:30 pm. The director assisted the licensing inspector during the inspection. There were 116 children present, ranging in ages from four to 12 years, with 18 staff supervising. The inspector reviewed compliance in the areas of administration, physical plant, staffing and supervision, programming, medication, special care and emergencies and nutrition. A total of 10 child records and 10 staff records were reviewed.

Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the program.

The record for Board Officer #1 contained a central registry findings dated 3/1/2016. A member of management stated an updated central registry check was mailed for Board Officer #1 on 3/31/2022 and they are awaiting for the results.

Plan of Correction: The background checks have been requested and we are waiting for the results. We will email the results to the licensing inspector once we receive them.

Staff #1 stated daily attendance was kept on a tablet. Staff #1 stated staff members did not have attendance that documented times in each grouping. Staff #1 showed the licensing inspector a wipe-off board staff also uses to document attendance.

Plan of Correction: Staff have the app to take attendance on their phones. We will develop a daily attendance sheet that can be written on and saved indicating the children's arrival and departure times.


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.
