An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today from 10:30 am - 12:45 pm. There were 11 children at the beginning of the inspection with the provider and two staff for 37 points. I observed children coming in from the playground, eating snack, at play with manipulative toys and dramatic role playing and beginning lunch. Records were well-organized. There was a large variety of age appropriate materials available for the children today. No children's medications were present. If you have any questions, please contact 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.
