The Licensing Inspector conducted an unannounced complaint inspection in response to a complaint that was received by the licensing office on 4/2/2023 and 4/13/2023. Interviews were conducted with staff relating to the allegations of not notifying parents of a child's head injury and not documenting the injury, not providing certificates to staff for trainings, hard toys not being washed, and classroom set up preventing sight and sound supervision. The information gathered during this investigation supports one of the allegations, so the complaint is determined to be partially valid. If you have any questions you may contact me at Mark.Davis@doe.virginia.gov or 804-629-7103.

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.
