The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced inspection on Thursday, March 23, 2017 from approximately 10:30am to 12:40pm. There were 15 children present being supervised by two staff members. During the inspection, the children were observed eating lunch, playing with balls in the gym, sorting toys by colors, taking bathroom breaks and washing their hands. Lunch consisted of hamburgers, oranges, sweet potato fries and milk. Later children transitioned into nap time. Areas of the facility including the classroom, hallways, bathroom, gym and outdoor play area were inspected. The facilities were equipped with toys and supplies and items were available to the children.

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.
