An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted at 10:50am. 20 children + 5 direct-care staff + 2 managers were on-site today. Ratios and supervision were in compliance. Children were observed playing with toys, having educational water play, and having outdoor active-play on the playground. Staff were actively engaged with the children and activities in each group. Classrooms were found to be clean and well-supplied with toys, materials, and furnishings. The ?new? outdoor playground offers a multitude of creative and child-driven educational play opportunities. Information gathered during the inspection determined there were areas of non-compliance with applicable standards or laws reviewed. Questions about this inspection may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
