An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on 3/28/2023. There were 9 children, ages 3 years-4years and 3 staff present during the inspection. The inspector reviewed compliance in the areas of administration, personnel, environment and equipment, care of children, preventing the spread of disease, emergencies and nutrition. A total of 4 children?s records and 1 staff record were reviewed. The children were observed during center time and lunch. The inspector arrived for the inspection at 10:37am and departed the center at 11:24am.

Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the provider.

Standard #: 8VAC20-780-280-B
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that hazardous substances, such as cleaning materials, were kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children.

Evidence: The blue cabinet underneath the sink in between the bathrooms in classroom A was unlocked and had cleaning materials inside. No children were observed in the area but it was accessible to children.

Plan of Correction: Provider will ensure cabinet is locked at all times.


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.
