Technical Assistance:
The center is undergoing a change of sponsorship. Therefore, an initial inspection was conducted to issue a new license. It should be noted that the old license was under the subsidy program. Please, contact subsidy to inform them of this change in order to ensure a smooth transition between licenses. Our contact is Richmond is Debra Burns at (804) 726-7090. On the date of inspection the following background checks have been sent: CPS - All Staff #1 - #20, CRC - All Staff #1 - #20, and out of state CPS checks from: West Virginia (for Staff #3, and Staff #10). The new license will not be issued until the documentation for the CPS checks from North Carolina (for both Board Members #1 and #2) are obtained and reviewed by the Division of Licensing. Also, based on the determination of the Health Department a REPORT OF ENVIRONMENTAL SANITATION INSPECTION was not needed. An e-mail from a representative of the Health Department will be attached, indicating this fact, to the initial application.

Comments:
The following inspection took place between the hours of 10 am through 3:30 pm. Today, I met with the Staff of Kiddie Academy located in the town of Leesburg, Virginia. At the start of this announced initial inspection there were a total of 73 children with 14 classroom staff; good ratios in all 8 rooms. A total of 11 children?s files and all 20 staff files were reviewed. The children were engaged in the following: infant feeding, tummy time, diaper changing, books, center play within the classroom, large motor skills on the center playground, lunch, nap time, and other organized activities. If you should have any future questions, please call. Thank you. Charlie Perkins, Licensing Inspector (703) 309-3963
