An exit interview was conducted with the director to discuss the results of today's inspection. Consultation was given regarding the requirement of observing children in care.

An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today, November 20, 2015 to determine the center's compliance with licensing standards. No children were in care during this inspection as a result standards regarding supervision could not be determined. All areas used by children were inspected to include the main hallways, children's restrooms, classroom, and office/child area. No hazards were found on this day.

The center had the required postings displayed on the wall upon entering the classroom. The center's first aid kit and emergency supplies were inspected with the required supplies found. Two children's and one staff records were inspected with the majority of the required information present, see attached notice. The following was also inspected on this day: daily schedule, annual fire & health inspections, fire/shelter-in-place drills, injury prevention plan, parent agreements, and other pertinent information

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.
