An unannounced monitoring inspection took place today from 11:00 - 2:30 pm. There were five classes present with 51 children. I observed children cleaning up after a painting project; preparing for lunch; discussing weekend events and cars; and a smooth transition to napping to soothing music. Records and children's medications were well-organized. If you have any questions, please contact me at

Under the sink in one preschool room, a loose screw and pipes were accessible.

Plan of Correction: I will contact facilities immediately. Work orders have already been placed for all the issues on the playground, the bike handles have been order and the bikes are now not accessible; the facilities' tech is scheduled to replace the light covers. I will put a work order in for under the sink.

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.
