Virginia Department of Social Services Mandated Inspections - The Fairfax County Office for Children conducts multiple site visits over the course of a year to make sure that we are maintaining all regulations and standards.  Our most recent unannounced visit occurred today, on November 1st. The Inspector spent a total of 4 hours conducting a thorough inspection of facilities, records, and most importantly the staff's interaction and overall care of children. We encourage parents to read the full report which are posted on the Information Boards in both houses. All past Inspection reports can be accessed online through the VDSS website.

Warm and Extra Clothes - Please begin to switch out your child's extra clothes to Cold Weather items - pants, long-sleeve shirts, socks, etc. Please make sure your child has a warm jacket to wear at the playground - our playground is shaded and can be a bit cooler during Morning Recess and with the upcoming Day Light Savings, we anticipate Afternoon Recess to be much chillier.

Thanks to our M&M's and all teachers for a spooktacular success at the Halloween Party! Due to the many requests for pictures, we will no longer be sending out individual emails to each parent. Please look for information about a secure and private website to access your child's photos.
