Thank you for your assistance during this unannounced inspection that was conducted on November 17, 2017 and December 5, 2017. This inspection was initiated from a complaint that was received by the Valley Licensing office on November 13, 2017 regarding staffing and supervision and background checks. On November 17, 2017 there were eighty-eight (88) children in the care of sixteen (16) staff. Eighteen (18) staff and two (2) administrative personnel records were reviewed an updated on December 5, 2017 at Bright Beginnings corporate office. Three (3) staff members were interviewed and all classrooms were viewed. The information gathered during this investigation does not support the allegation.

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.
