Director Nina Clancy stated that on August 9, 2016, an informal staff meeting was conducted with staff responsible for providing care and supervision for children and present during the wandering child incident. During the meeting the incident was discussed and the following procedures were enacted to avoid any child wander off the facility.
  • Command watch put on alarm system permanently so whenever an outside door is opened it tones.
  • An additional buzzer was installed on the East playground door and the door stop was removed so the door cannot be propped open at any time.
  • Front door panic bar is now kept on release mode so that the door has to be depressed in order to open, making it more difficult for a young child to open the door.
  • Disciplinary forms were written up on three employees who were supervising the East playground when the child wandered off.
  • All staff meeting held September 2, 2016 to discuss the incident and the facility's weaknesses for containment were and how we could correct them.
  • Safety Strategies/ Containment of Children protocol written up and gone over with all staff and inserted into all Classroom Handbooks.
  • Sign in and out roster for all the children who are brought into the East/West playground daily.
  • Director or designate will monitor the foyer during playtimes, lunch and end of day.
  • Children are actively kept out of designated red zone area on the East playground.
  • Permanently assigned positions for staff while children are out in the East playground.
Nina Clancy is informed that any further Type A violation of Care and Supervision will result in referring the facility to our Legal Division for possible Administrative Action.

A copy of this signed report was given today to Nina Clancy.
