Today we discussed updating the class schedules to clearly show that each group of children spend a minimum of one hour of outdoor time daily.

Also discussed was the need for Inspection Results to be easily reviewed by parents in an area where they do not need to ask for assistance or permission to review.

A monitoring inspection was initiated and concluded on 5/20/2022. At the time that the inspector arrived there were 90 children present, ranging in ages from 2 to 5 years old, with 13 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 5 child records and 5 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.

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.
