An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today, July 5, 2017 from 10:00am until 12:30pm. Twenty-one children today were observed to be actively supervised by five staff members. Children were observed creating handprint artwork, eating a snack consisting of cereal and playing outside. Smooth and organized transitions were observed as children moved in a group to the rest room and then outdoors to play. During the inspection the building lost power for a period of 30 minutes. The Assistant Director was seen at this time to notify parents via e mail, coordinate with the building manager, and following the center's emergency plan for power outage. The staff and children remained calm throughout the outage. A total of 12 staff files and 7 children's records were reviewed. The emergency plan, the physical plant, the playground, emergency drills, emergency plans and supplies were also inspected. There was an abundant supply of materials for the children. The center was clean and organized. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the Violation Notice. If you have any questions regarding this inspection, please contact the Licensing Inspector, Kara Wright at or 703-537-6241.
