An unannounced monitoring inspection took place today from 10 am - 12:30. There were 9 children present at the beginning of the visit with two staff for 20 points. By the end of the inspection, there were 11 children with 3 staff for 26 points. I observed children eating snack, building with Legos, reading stories and playing in a large, well-equipped dramatic play area. One child was pretending to give the stuffed animals a bath, and another was singing to a babydoll. 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.
