A group of toddlers managed to wander off from a local daycare center undetected, as the above ABC7 report from last night explains.

A parent picking up her 2-year-old from the Montgomery Child Care Association’s Bethesda/Lynbrook center (8001 Lynbrook Dr.) noticed her son and three others wandering outside the center, across a street.

The children were found by a nearby man who tried to alert staff at the center to the missing kids. No one is sure how long they were gone, according to ABC7′s report.

MCCA, a nonprofit with other daycare center locations in Silver Spring, Potomac, Rockville, Olney and Garrett Park, issued a statement to ABC7 and says it has fired the teachers involved:

We regret this incident occurred and have taken immediate and decisive action. We have conducted an investigation into this incident and the teachers involved have been terminated

The toddlers were unharmed.
