An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today. There were 69 children in care, with a total of 13 staff members assigned to their direct supervision. Children's records, staff background checks, staff training certificates, staff records, the physical plant, emergency preparedness items, children's nutrition, and children's medications were inspected today.

The children were observed during open center activity time. A large variety of activity choices were offered to the children, including: music and movement, making bird eggs and nests, "assembling" Humpty Dumpty art projects, assembling leprechaun traps, eating snack, engaging in quiet activities, and engaging in creative play activities.

This inspection was completed between approximately 10:10am and 12:00pm. Thank you for meeting with me today. If you have any questions regarding this inspection please email me at

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.
