Code of Virginia (63.2-1509): Any teacher or other person employed in a public or private school, kindergarten, or child day program, as that term is defined in ? 22.1-289.02, who, in their professional or official capacity, have reason to suspect that a child is an abused or neglected child, shall report the matter immediately to the local department of the county or city wherein the child resides or wherein the abuse or neglect is believed to have occurred or to the Department's toll-free child abuse and neglect hotline.

Code of Virginia (22.1-289.045): No child day program or family day system shall retaliate in any manner against any person who in good faith

An unannounced inspection was initiated on 11/20/23 with a local agency based on a self-report made by the center following an allegation of a forbidden action-rough handling of a child in care. Interviews were conducted and two staff records were reviewed. There was insufficient evidence to support the allegation, and no violations were cited. If you have any questions regarding this inspection, you may contact the Licensing Inspector, Laura Brindle, at or 540-905-2062.


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.
