Technical Assistance:
1. Maintenance and repairs should be completed with an effort to prevent hazards vs. in response to found hazards. 2. The diaper changing table kept in the girl's bathroom, reportedly used for storage only, should be treated like any other surface/equipment in the center and be maintained in a clean condition. 3. If staff are listed as emergency contacts for a child, then they must be released from work if needed in an emergency. 4. Staff are to sit with children during lunch. 5. Systems should be established to read the content of documents before filing them, as staff were unaware of documented special needs of a child in their care today.

Conducted a unannounced monitoring inspection. Observed 58 children + 11 direct-care staff. Additional staff were available to assist in classrooms as needed. Ratios and supervision were in compliance. Children were observed reading, having circle time, singing, learning colors, having outside play time, eating lunch, and taking naps. Staff were actively engaged with the children and activities in all rooms. Lunch served: chicken, rice, mixed vegetables, mango, and milk. The infants were being held, fed, and taking naps. One staff person was playing with infants on the floor. The center was sufficiently supplied with toys and equipment for the children. Some areas of the center were in need of cleaning, maintenance, and repairs. Medication management was in compliance. Required documents were posted. Record keeping was organized, though one violation found in a child's record. Inspection completed 10:30am-1:05pm.

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.
