Upon the inspector's arrival, nine children were in care with two caregivers for a value of 24 points. Shortly after an additional caregiver arrived. Children were observed singing and dancing to a music video. Songs identified body parts and children pointed to them as they sang along.

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.
