Based on review of the written attendance, the center did not maintain a written record of daily attendance for each group of children that documents the arrival and departure of each child in care as it occurs.

Evidence: In the Three's classroom, there were 6 children signed in on the written attendance, however, there were 8 children present at the time of inspection.

Plan of Correction: Extra training to be sure the teacher receiving students from the bus checks them in on Brightwheel.


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.
