An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted with the new Director and the Assistant Director from 10:35am to 3:05pm on 5/4/2023, in response to a self-report by the program regarding a forbidden action- striking a child. Video footage was reviewed, interviews were conducted, classrooms were observed, and one child record and two staff records were reviewed. Violations were cited in response to the inspection and can be reviewed on the Violation Notice. If you have questions regarding this inspection, you may contact the Licensing Inspector, Laura Brindle, at or 540-905-2062.

Please complete the "Plan of Correction" and "Date to be Corrected" areas on the Violation Notice for each violation cited and return to me by close of business on 5/19/23. Plans of correction should include steps to correct the noncompliance with the standard, and measures to prevent the noncompliance from occurring again.

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.
