Description: Based on interview with staff and a review of center's policy, the center did not ensure center's activities comply with its own policies.

The interview with staff and written statements also confirmed the staff did not follow center's policies/procedures.

Interviews and written statements verified that Staff #1 did not complete these steps on 12/4/17.

Plan of Correction: Transportation Policies and Procedures were updated and enforced immediately. Upon the arrival to the center the bus driver must walk to the rear of the bus to ensure all children are alert and awake.
