1. On April 8, 2022 child # 1 left the building. Child # 1 was wearing noise cancelling head phones and was in the back hallway that was used for a gathering space in the mornings. Child # 1 left the area and passed the staff # 1?s office. Staff # 1 came out of the office while staff # 4 was rounding the corner of the hallway and saw staff # 1 come out of the office. The child went through the first door and continued to the main entrance door. Staff # 1 then went to follow child # 1. A college employee was entering the building as the child was exiting. The child then proceeded to run approximately 200 yards up two flights of outdoor stairs. A few seconds later another college employee/parent was exiting the building after the staff # 1 and child # 1. Staff # 1 was not able to run after the child due to a medical condition. Staff # 1 continued to yell at the child to stop. The child was not able to hear any one because of the head phones. The two college employees caught up to the child prior to the child entering another building and carried the child back to the center.
