An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted with provider and four assistants. There were 11 children present with 5 caregivers totalling 27 points. The group was returning from a field trip to Clark's farm to visit the pumpkin patch and CiCi's pizza for lunch. The children washed hands and laid down for rest. The day care is nicely decorated with seasonal artwork and there are a plethora of age appropriate activities and toys. Five children's files and one staff file were reviewed - please see Supplemental Summary for missing items. Reminder: the first aid/CPR certification will expire November 2016 for several staff. The background checks for staff/household members are due to be repeated January 2016. Time of today's inspection: 1:15 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please call me if you have any questions 540-219-4122 or e-mail

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.
