Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on March 15, 2018 from approximately 12:50pm-2:45pm. There were 35 children present at arrival to the facility with five staff members. The children were observed being dismissed from the program in one classroom and going to the bathroom and napping in the second classroom. Children that were not resting were engaged in quiet activities on their cots. Three medications were reviewed in the facility on this date. Five children's records were reviewed. A large open field is being used for the outdoor play area, as the program is no longer utilizing the playground equipment at the school.

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.
