Comments:
A complaint investigation was completed on 2/10/2023 at 3:00pm to 5:25pm. The complaint consisted of allegations received by the Licensing Office regarding the center not being in compliance with staff/child ratio requirements. There were 28 children ages 22 months to age 5 years old supervised by 4 staff. The physical plant, attendance, 6 staff records, 2 volunteer records and 6 children?s records were reviewed. Children were observed having snack, participating in free play, and reading. Based on staff interviews, observation and review of attendance for the classrooms, the preponderance of evidence does not support the allegation. Therefore, the complaint is determined to be not valid. Violations cited today were found during the course of the investigation not directly related to the complaint.

Areas of non-compliance are identified in the Violation Notice. Please email with questions at: Angela.Dudek@doe.virginia.gov.
