Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. with the center director. 53 children, ages 6 months through 5 years old, were under the care and supervision of seven staff. Children were observed listening to a readaloud, playing outside, playing in various centers, and eating lunch. Lunch served today was pizza, green beans, pineapple tidbits, and milk. Required information was posted. Both the fire and health inspections are current. The last emergency escape drill was 2/16/18; the last shelter-in-place drill on 9/8/17; and last lockdown drill on 8/31/17. There were no medications to review. Five children's records and four staff records were reviewed. A subsidy health and safety inspection was also conducted (see separate report). For any questions about this inspection, please contact licensing inspector Marty Quade at (540) 272-5065 and Marty.Quade@dss.virginia.gov.
