Daycare facility serious about following state guidelines

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

At Baby World Developmental daycare these children are the staff's number one priority.

"I train my staff to implement the state guidelines, and if you follow guidelines children will be safe," said Dr. Alma Noble, Director.

Those guidelines staff members must adhere to are pretty lengthy.

"We have guidelines for every aspect of childcare from infancy, toddlers, 3, 4 year olds, after school program, transportation," said Noble.

At Baby World Development daycare they are serious about following state guidelines, they have a checklist that includes all of the students names, so they can know which children are getting on and off this bus.

"In the morning time I make sure I get up and walk the van to make sure no one's left on the seat, as I exit I also check again," said Latasha Morman, worker.

Latasha Morman heard our story Friday about four year old Barrett Clinton who was left on a van outside Wee Kare for nearly two hours in Lee County, luckily he was ok, but Morman knows it could have had a different outcome.  She says her sister suffocated when she was left on a school van.

"I cringe every time I hear it because, I know the experience, I know what it's doing to the family to have a child left on the van so I know what they're going through," said Morman.

Daycare owner Alma Noble tells me all daycare workers must be extremely careful.

"It was just human error, I think all daycare providers and workers really want to keep children safe, and it was error of omission, someone forgot to follow through with the rules and regulations," said Noble.

Rules she says can save the lives of children.

Representatives with the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning were at Wee Kare today talking to workers, parents, and children as they investigate Friday's incident.
