The next anticipated inspection will be the provider?s renewal inspection. Provider was reminded to have all renewal application documents completed and sent into licensing office 45 days prior to expiration for processing. The renewal application is available on the VDSS website.

Today an unannounced Renewal inspection took place between 10:45am and 2:00pm. There were 8 children present with the provider and 1 assistant for a total of 23 points within the supervision guidelines. The children were observed finishing lunch (brought from home), playing freely, being read to, pottying and going down for their naps. A complete inspection of the physical plant, children and staff records, fire drill log, menu, attendance and emergency procedures were observed during this inspection. Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please email me at
