Upon the inspector's arrival children were playing in centers (play-dough, house keeping/dress-up, and art). Today's art project consisted of coloring a cd with markers and gluing a marble in the center to create a spinning top. Children carved a jack-o'-lantern and estimated how much the pumpkin weighed. Later children had lunch in the elementary school cafeteria. Today's lunch consisted of pulled pork BBQ on a whole grain bun, baked beans, fruit and milk. Children were also observed on the playground where they played on climbing equipment, with balls, and sidewalk chalk. Children were excited to watch trucks pass by the playground and blow their horn. Staff circulated around the playground and initiated group games. Systems were in place to check the playground before children entered for any hazards.

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.
