This inspection was conducted by licensing staff using an alternate remote protocol, necessary due to a state of emergency health pandemic declared by the Governor of Virginia. An announced initial study was conducted today to determine compliance with licensing standards. The inspection was initiated at 3:00pm and concluded at 4:30pm. No children were in care, thus those standards regarding the care and supervision of children were not reviewed. The home has not yet opened for child care purposes, the provider is requesting a license capacity for 5 children, the provider has been approved by zoning to provide care for this number. The physical plant, emergency supplies and procedures were inspected virtually. The lower level of the home is dedicated to the daycare. The fenced backyard offers outdoor play space for the children. Required documents were posted and the provider's record and household member's records were reviewed. Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the facility. If you have any questions regarding this inspection, please contact the Licensing Inspector, Maria Soto at or (571) 835-5058.
