Transportation is often a child’s first encounter with the educational system each day. Safe, reliable transportation services represent an essential gateway for children and their families to access and participate in early education and out of school time settings.

Transportation Safety Training (for Family and Group Child Care)

In an effort to increase public awareness about the safe transportation of children, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Safe Kids USA have joined together to implement the “Look Before You Lock” campaign. The “Look Before You Lock” campaign promotes the importance of double-checking cars, vans, and buses for children who might have been left behind. This training is intended to increase awareness in all adults, including parents and caregivers, about the risks of hypothermia in vehicles and best practices to prevent this from occurring. This is a mandatory training for all new educators, providers, assistants, and center staff.
