A Brooklyn preschool has had its license suspended and two teachers were fired after a child was left behind on a school outing.

A spokesperson for the Infant and Toddler Center at Williamsburg Northside Preschool says it's now reviewing its procedures.

The school says that the teachers were fired for failing to follow the school's strict policies.

Sources tell NY1 that two teachers took a group of nine kids to East River State Park last Wednesday.

When the teachers returned to the school, according to sources, they realized they were missing one of the children.

Another adult found the child, who was unharmed and brought back to school safely.

The Department of Health, which suspended the school's license after the school told it about the incident, says it's working with the program on a corrective action plan.
