Consultation was given on injury documentation, allergy care plans and model forms on the VA DOE Licensing website:

An unannounced renewal study was conducted in the newly renovated space. 6 children were present with 2 staff and were on the playground upon arrival. Observed transition into the classroom, hand washing and play time in the large open space. The program now offers before and after care as well as the dedicated preschool program. Additional staff are available for the extended day portion of the afternoon. Reviewed physical space, records for children and staff, emergency preparation, trainings and medication. Lunches are bought from home. The staff records and administrative records are kept at a central location with the Parks and Recreation staff. Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the program. Feel free to contact me if you need any assistance.

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.
