There were 75 children in care, ranging in age from two-years to five-years-old, supervised by 12 staff. The children were observed playing on the playground, having a class birthday party, practicing writing, washing hands, and playing with tabletop toys. Five child records and two staff records were reviewed. The Center has 16 staff with current certification in CPR and First Aid, and 17 staff trained in Daily Health Observation Training. Four medications and authorization forms were reviewed and the center has six staff current in Medication Administration Training (MAT). Required postings were observed.

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 5/26/23.

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.
