Comments:
A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on 3/20/18 from 10:30 am until 12:30 pm to review supplemental health and safety requirements. At the time of the inspection 47 children were present with 10 staff members present. The sample size consisted of five staff's records, five children's records and three diaper ointments. Children and staff were observed during free indoor play, center activities, reading time, singing, dancing during educational lessons, art activities, lunch, nap, hand washing, bathroom break, transitions, and behavioral management. A licensing inspection was also conducted this date; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. Violations were found during the supplemental subsidy health and safety inspection and are identified on the violation notice. The violations from the previous inspection were reviewed for current compliance. No repeat violations were found. If you have questions or concerns contact the licensing inspector at (540) 292-5933 for further assistance.

Disclaimer:

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.
