Transportation policy for early education and care programs

The Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) has developed a Transportation Policy that lists the responsibilities of educators, programs, and transportation providers regarding the transportation of children in EEC-licensed or funded programs.

Who needs to follow this policy?

All Group and School Age Child Care and Family Child Care programs licensed by EEC that offer transportation services for children need to follow this policy in order to keep their license. Programs that receive funding in any way from EEC also need to follow the policy.

Transportation plan

By following this policy, programs must submit a plan for administrative oversight of their transportation program to EEC no later than September 29, 2017.

The FY18 Income Eligible Contract contains language stating as a condition for the renewal of the contract that center-based child care programs and family child care systems that provide transportation either directly or through a subcontract must submit a plan for administrative oversight of their transportation program to EEC no later than September 29, 2017.

All transportation plans should clearly note the agency’s name, contact person, contact information, and date of submission. Transportation plans should be submitted electronically to Jonathan Dickinson.
