The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced renewal inspection on Friday, May 20, 2016 from 10:30am to 11:45pm. The children were playing outside in the backyard upon the inspector?s arrival. Afterwards they came inside and watched a "My Baby can Read" dvd. They were later observed eating a snack of pretzels and strawberries while they listened to a story being read by the caregiver. Today, there were six children, totaling 12 points, present with two caregivers. Interviews were held with the caregivers throughout the inspection. Additionally, when appropriate the inspector interacted with children. The provider does administer medication. The provider does provide transportation. The provider does not not have pets. Two children?s records, and two caregivers? records were reviewed during the inspection. Last emergency drill: 04/15/2016 Last shelter-in-place drill: 10/23/2015 The violations from the previous inspections were checked for corrections.

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.

Virginia Quality is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for early care and education facilities serving children ages birth through pre-K. Eligible child care facilities must be fully licensed, licensed exempt and a VDSS subsidy vendor, or a voluntary registered day home and a VDSS subsidy vendor. Only programs enrolled in Virginia Quality will display a rating. Virginia Quality contact information for your region is available at the following link Regional Contacts.
