A Subsidy and Health inspection was conducted on October 18, 2017 to review supplemental health and safety requirements. Upon arrival at approximately 10:30am, the LI verified 51 children present. The children were grouped in 4 classrooms. Each classroom was staffed in ratio: 7/2 staff (toddlers); 16/3 staff (2's); 13/2 staff (3's); and 15/2 staff (pre-K). In the afternoon, 51 children arrived from school. The children were observed during free play, outdoor play, lunch, nap time, afternoon snack and dismissal at the end of the program day. Staff were observed interacting with the children. The LI observed staff reading to the children in the two-year old classroom. Records were reviewed for children and staff. Documentation of the Center's annual health and fire inspections was current. Children's medications and allergy action plans were reviewed. A licensing inspection was also conducted this date; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. Violations found during the subsidy and health inspection are identified on the violation notice. Findings were reviewed at exit. If you have any questions, please call (540)09-2310. The inspection concluded at 4:40pm. Thank you.

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.
