-This initial subsidy inspection was conducted by the inspector using an alternate remote protocol necessary due to a state of emergency declared by the Governor of Virginia in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A RECDC inspection on site was conducted in Aug of 2019 and the childcare connection trainer has done the pre-service subsidy training on site and a pre-inspection check last fall.

-An initial subsidy inspection was initiated on 6/3/2020, at which time the vendor was contacted by telephone/ facetime to initiate the inspection, and concluded on 6/4/2020. The inspector emailed the vendor a list of items required to complete the inspection.

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.
