An unannounced inspection was conducted this afternoon. The entire building and classes were checked. The groups were in ratio and children were observed as they transitioned from lunch to nap. The center was preparing by filling hundreds of plastic eggs for an Easter egg hunt tomorrow that also includes Easter Baskets. Staff files and new children's files reviewed and were deemed complete. The staff have been taking lots of training on line. Please call with questions 703-479-4679

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on observation the staff in the two's class did not ensure hazardous substances such as cleaning materials and air freshener was kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: 1. Inspector observed air fresher spray on shelf above the sink in the two's room. Inspector told her it needed to be locked. 2. The Inspector observed the locking mechanism on the cabinet door handles but staff was able to pull doors open enough to fit spray bottle into the cabinet. The Inspector then tried the doors and opened enough to look and see bottles inside and are accessible for children's reach.

Plan of Correction: It will be fixed today.

Description: Based on observation, the infant staff did not ensure children's hands shall be washed with soap and running water after eating meal. Evidence: 1. Staff was observed taking child out of high chair when lunch was finished and handed to another staff to play.

Plan of Correction: Will remind staff to wash hands before and after.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-570-A

Plan of Correction: We will remind staff about fasteners.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-580-I
Description: Based on staff interview and record review, the center did not post in a visible place, the schedule of the field trip. Evidence: 1. The Director stated the school age children were not in the building because they were on a field trip to see a movie. The Inspector asked where and what time the movie was and the Director stated the location but looked on Smart Phone to find correct time. 2. Inspector asked where permission slip was and she explained they have blanket permission slip and check off names that are going. 3. There was no note posted in the center where parents could view the schedule for the field trip.

Plan of Correction: I did not realize that was necessary because we get permission but will do so for now on.


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.
