There were eighteen children, ages two to four years of age, on the playground with four staff members. Staff #1 completed a head count at approximately 4:50 P.M. and realized a child was missing. Staff #1 completed a name to face check and determined that Child #1 was the missing child. Staff #1 notified Staff #2 that Child #1 was missing. Following a search of the playground area by Staff #1 and Staff #2, Staff #1 entered the building and continued the search. Child #1 was located in Classroom A at approximately 5:00 P.M. where the child was observed standing alone in the middle of the classroom looking around. 2. The child went into the building through the Resource Room door, and then crossed the hallway and went into Classroom #1. 3.
