(Woonsocket-AP) -- The Department of Children, Youth and Families is investigating a Woonsocket Head Start program after teachers left a child behind when they left for a field trip. Cass Park Head Start director Karen Bouchard tells The Providence Journal that the May Eleventh incident is being investigated by DCYF. Michael Williams says his five-year-old grandson, Jacob, told him he was left behind after his class departed for a field trip. Williams says that when Jacob was using the restroom, the teacher that was waiting for him was called away to handle a behavioral problem, and the group left without him. Williams has since taken his grandson out of the program. The Head Start director says the boy was left for five minutes, and staff returned once they realized he was missing. The director says the staff members were reprimanded.
