Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today, 4/24/19. Upon arrival to the center the children were eating lunch, washed hand, then had circle time, read books and made a crown. The children then went to the playroom to play. There are 11 children in care ranging in age from 2-4 year olds with two staff. A review of staff and children's files was conducted. We discussed the VDSS website and how to access forms and current e-mails that have been sent out. Inspection began: 10:45 am and ended 12:40 pm.
