Technical Assistance:
Consultation was given on the preschool group using the playground area when the middle school kids are not outside to ensure the younger children are protected from the older children.

Comments:
An unannounced monitoring visit was conducted today. Nine children were present with two adults- a staff member and a co-op member. The children were observed in circle time, transitioning to hand washing and the rest room and playing outside on the playground equipment. No medication was reported to be on-site. Three children's files and 1 staff record was reviewed. The class room recently had new carpet installed. No injury reports were reported to be completed for the school year. The injury reports are reviewed by the Preschool Director on a quarterly basis. Areas of non-compliance are identified in this report. Please sign and date the report and return it to me within 5 calendar days from date of receipt. If you have any questions regarding the inspection please feel free to contact me. The provider's responses were not received as of 2/10/2017 and will not appear on the Violation Notice. Thank you Ann Dramstad Licensing Inspector 703-314-0860 ann.dramstad@dss.virginia.gov
