Eligible letters will be sent out by e-mail and staff may not work with children (ratios or supervision) until a completed letter is received. Please read, review and respond to all correspondences regarding the fingerprint roll out.

Comments:
An unannounced monitoring visit was conducted today. Ten children were present with a staff member and co-op caregiver. The room has recently been painted and ceiling tiles replaced. Children were observed participating in centers, transition to circle time, yoga stretches and working on the letter "N". One medication authorization was reviewed, one child's record and emergency preparation for drills and training (MAT, FA/CPR and DHO). Areas of non-compliance are identified in the violation notice.

The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
