KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Despite accusations that a KCK daycare left a 4-year-old girl at a Johnson County movie theater on Tuesday, no one has filed complaints against the company.
But that doesn't mean they haven't faced problems.
Merriam Police say Back 2 Basics daycare left the girl behind Tuesday afternoon. She was later reunited with her parents by theater staff.
Records from the Kansas Department of Health and environment show surveys that began last March cited Back 2 Basics for several issues - including exposed nails and wires, and medications left within the reach of children.
Each visit after the first was unannounced to see if issues had been solved. The Kansas City, Kan., daycare did improve conditions each time, but the latest survey in December still showed a primary provider did not have sufficient training.
So far, KDHE is not investigating the business based on Tuesday's incident.
They will get another inspection when their license expires at the end of June. Merriam Police said they have not finished their investigation and still cannot yet determine if any charges will be filed.
