LICENSING

Katydid Inc.’s Farm School preschool is licensed by Virginia’s Department of Social Services (VDSS). Standards for licensed programs address certain issues such as: health, play space, staff qualifications, staff-child ratios, program guidelines, record keeping, and building codes. Compliance with standards is determined by periodic visits to the site by a licensing agent. In addition, parents may register a complaint for investigation or obtain additional information by contacting:

Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect

The children in our care are appreciated and nurtured. If it is suspected that a child has been abused, neglected or exploited in any way, our program staff are required by law to report it to FCPA and Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS). The Youth Services Director of FCPA will then immediately make a report to Child Protective Services. Strict confidentially will be maintained.
