The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced monitoring inspection, at which play groups, activities, group time, pre-lunch time, lunch time, post-lunch time, pre-rest time activities, and rest time were observed. Children were observed; and staff and children files and other documentation were reviewed. Forty-three (43) children were found to be in care with 9 staff, the assistant director, and kitchen staff. The ages of the children were from 3 months through 12 years. Previous violations were reviewed, and one (1) of the violations from the previous inspection had not been corrected. There were five (5) violations cited, in five (5) different areas of the standards today. One (1) violation was deemed repetitive and systemic as it was cited for non-compliance during this inspection, making three (3) times consecutively of non-compliance.

Administration will make it a priority to double check for agency completion of forms when we receive them back.


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.
