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.

This kind of basic plan creates a safety net to help make sure that no child gets left in a car.
