Description: Based on review of documentation it was determined that staff did not always ensure the care, protection, and guidance of children under their supervision. Evidence: Based on injury reports and incident reports for the Pre-K classroom it was determined that child A (Age 5 years) injured children and staff eight times between the dates of 02/23/24 - 03/06/2024. The behaviors that occurred in these reports include hitting, kicking, punching, and hitting with large blocks and puzzles in the classroom.

Plan of Correction: At the d1rect1on of the licensing specialist, the classroom staff have been specifically recording Child A's behaviors that are challenging in an effort to focus support efforts. Additionally, several strategies in line with the child's IEP are in place within the classroom, and staff are continually supported by school administration. School administration continues to work cooperatively with the child's developmental intervention team to continue to improve outcomes.


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.
