Description: Based on interview, the center did not ensure behavioral guidance was constructive in nature, age and stage appropriate, and intended to redirect children to appropriate behavior and resolve conflicts.
1. On 1/14/2021 at approximately 2:45pm, Child #1 (2 years old) was laying on a mat and attempted to crawl away from the mat. Staff A grabbed Child #1's shirt by her left hand, pulled the child up by the shirt to a standing position and put the child on her lap to avoid the child from bothering others.
2. Staff A stated she was feeling frustrated.

Plan of Correction: The Staff member no longer works at the Center. In the next Staff Meeting on February 2, 2021, Center Directors will provide mandatory training that will review with the full staff:
