KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas health officials have suspended the license of a daycare center after staff members left a 3-year-old at a Johnson County movie theater.

The Kansas City Star reports the state Department of Health and Environment issued the emergency suspension Friday against Back 2 Basics Learning Center in Kansas City, Kan.

The KDHE order says two 16-year-old staff members took 14 younger children and two 13-year-olds to a Merriam movie theater Tuesday.

After the group left, a theater employee found the 3-year-old unattended in a restroom. The order says it was two hours before the daycare center called looking for the girl.

The state cited a number of alleged violations of employee training rules and failure to maintain required documents.

The voicemail box at the daycare center was full Friday.
