A complaint inspection was conducted on 08/24/2022 from 3:00 P.M.-4:15 P.M. A complaint was received in the Office of Child Care Health and Safety (Valley) on 08/04/2022 regarding the physical plant and notification to parents regarding communicable diseases. The inspector reviewed compliance in the areas of administration, physical plant,staffing and supervision, programming, and special services. One staff record was reviewed, three staff were interviewed, the facility was toured, and classroom observations took place.

The information gathered during the inspection did not determine preponderance of evidence. Therefore, the complaint is not valid.

There were two other violations that were in non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the program.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Licensing Inspector at 540-430-9257.

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.
