1. The licensee uses a Child Supervision Record (CSR) system for accounting for the whereabouts of each child in care. The CSR system requires staff to perform a name-to-face check of each child during each transition, verifying that each child has made the transition. After the name-to-face verification, the staff should document the number of children and teachers at the bottom of the CSR.
2. On 5/11/2022 at approximately 11:25am, Staff #1 left the Pre-K classroom onto the playground with 14 children. Staff #1 had the classroom CSR sheet and marked 14 children present on the playground. Staff #2 remained in the classroom with 4 children.
3. At approximately 11:30am, Staff #2 left the Pre-K classroom onto the playground with 3 children. Staff #2 counted 3 children in the classroom and counted 3 children again outside, however they were unaware that they originally had 4 children inside the classroom. The name-to-face CSR transition was not completed as required. Staff #2 marked 4 children's names on the CSR sheet, despite only 3 children coming outside.
