A monitoring inspection was conducted on 5/3/22 from 1:00pm until 2:55pm. At the time of the inspection, there were 64 children in care with 10 staff present. A sample of 6 children's records and 6 staff records were reviewed. Children were observed resting quietly during nap time and eating snack. Infant feeding and restroom and handwashing procedures were also observed. First aid and emergency supplies, transportation, documentation of emergency practice drills, children's injury reports and required center postings were reviewed. Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law. Violations are listed on the violation notice issued to the center and were discussed with the assistant director during the exit interview.

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.
