With summer in full swing, there is an increase in the number of children in child care. The Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE) reminds all child care facilities to practice safe travel during routine transportation, as well as field trips. Transporting children is a high-risk activity. Child care operators, staff members, and parents need to be aware that transporting children requires careful planning and proactive, protective measures to ensure the safety of all children and staff. Careful planning also reduces liability for child care operators and their programs.
