Children were unattended and a child left the facility
Children were unattended and one child left the facility, opening the gate, and leaving out the front door. The door alarm was disabled at the time, so staff were unaware that the child left. The child was found on the street in front of the facility.
Provider took steps to ensure that this cannot happen again. Front door handle was replaced and moved to a higher spot on the door so that children cannot reach it. The gate that is located at the entrance to the playroom was replaced with a higher metal gate which is screwed to the door frame permanently. A video security system was installed so that the provider can monitor children at all times. A procedure was written for supervision and was discussed with staff.
