An unannounced complaint investigation regarding supervision was conducted today. Appropriate staff interviews were completed today. In addition, an unannounced monitoring inspection was also conducted today. After careful review of all available information, the complaint was deemed not valid. However, violations were cited as a result of the monitoring inspection. The provider and one assistant caregiver were caring for 7 children, totaling 16 points.

The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
