All changes to the background check procedures were reviewed today. All future communication regarding background check procedures will only be sent via email. Due to the height of the backyard play structure, the slide and climbing wall shall remain off limits to children in care.

An unannounced full renewal inspection was conducted today. The provider and one assistant caregiver were caring for 4 children, totaling 9 points. The Inspector reviewed staff and provider records, children's records, emergency preparedness documents and supplies, the physical plant, and administrative documents today. The provider reported that no children's medications were on site today. The children were observed playing with toys, practicing color recognition skills, interacting with each caregiver, and preparing for lunch today. The children were served chicken sandwiches, fresh mixed salad, and milk for lunch today. This inspection was completed between approximately 9:30 am and 11:20 am. Thank you for meeting with me today. If you have any questions regarding this inspection please email me at

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.
