An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today. Nine children, plus two resident children, were present with the provider and assistant. Total 19 points with two caregivers. The younger children were eating lunch and getting ready for rest time. The school age children were working on a craft activity with beads. No new children have started in care since the last inspection. The provider has added a fish pond in her back yard. Even though the children do not play in the back yard and it is enclosed, please ensure they do not have any access to the fish pond. The provider continues to use the playground next to the home for outdoor play. If you have any questions, I can be reached at 703-479-4709.

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.

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.
