We also discussed balancing safety policies for groups of children on the playground with opportunities for independence and exploration.

An unannounced renewal inspection took place today from 10:15 am - 1:45 pm. There were five classes present with 47 children present. All rooms were within ratio, and school-agers will arrive later. I observed children busy digging in a table filled with soil and plastic flowers; working with puzzles; listening to a story about spring; singing; playing outdoors, eating lunch and beginning naptime. If you have any questions, please contact 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.
