An unannounced renewal inspection was initiated today at 2pm. There were 55 children under the supervision of 9 teachers. The physical plant, 6 staff files, 4 children's files, fire and health inspections, children's activities, medications, emergency procedures, drills and supplies were inspected today. During the inspection, children were observed being fed (infants), taking naps, reading books, listening to music, and interacting with the staff in a positive and constructive manner. For lunch, the children were served baked cheesy penne, mashed potatoes, apples and milk. Should you have any questions, please contact me at mary.wizbicki@dss.virginia.gov or (703) 479-4707.
