An initial licensing inspection was conducted on May 31, 2016, by appointment, between the hours of approximately 10:00 a.m. and 2:05 p.m. There were twelve (12) children enrolled and five children in the care of the provider and assistant on this date. The provider's record, assistant's record and all children's records were reviewed. The home and outdoor play area were toured. All areas of the licensing standards were observed/reviewed, including but not limited to: home maintenance, including "childproofing;" stairway gate; landline telephone; first aid kit and emergency supplies; posted information (daily schedule, emergency telephone numbers, menu, daily schedule and emergency evacuation diagram); available records/documents and caregiver training (first aid/cardiopulmonary resuscitation). Program observation was completed. Activities observed on this date included: coloring; indoor play with Legos; storytime; outdoor play; restroom, diapering and handwashing procedures; lunch (chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, green beans and milk), naptime routine and equipment (mats and linens) and arrival of one child. Adult/child interactions, behavior guidance and daily routines/transitions were also observed. The daily schedule and menu were consistent with the activities provided and the meal served. The children knew and followed the daily routine and transitions well. No violations of licensing standards were cited during this initial inspection. Thank you for your time and assistance during the licensing process. Please contact me if you have questions concerning this inspection, the licensing standards and/or if I may be of assistance to you (540) 430-9262.


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.
