Where's Baby? Look before you lock.
The summer months can be incredibly dangerous for children in cars. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 44 children died of heatstroke across the United States in 2013. A simple communication plan between parents and child care providers could save a child’s life. In an arrival confirmation plan, parents notify providers when their children will be late or absent, and providers contact parents if a child does not arrive as expected. This kind of basic plan creates a safety net to help make sure that no child gets left in a car.
