Car Safety Campaign aimed at Keeping Kids Safe!

Ebenezer Child Care Centers would like to say “kudos” to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for their “Where’s baby? Look before you lock” campaign which is urging parents and caregivers to take important precautions to prevent inadvertent incidents from occurring. The campaign says you should:

  • Never leave a child unattended in a vehicle – even if the windows are partially open or the engine is running and the air conditioning is on
  • Always make a habit of looking in the vehicle – front and back – before locking the door and walking away
  • Ask your childcare provider to call if your child does not show up for care as expected
  • Do things that serve as a reminder a child is in the vehicle, such as placing a purse or briefcase in the back seat to ensure no child is accidently left in the
    vehicle, writing a note or using a stuffed animal placed in the driver’s view to indicate a child is in the car seat
  • Teach children a vehicle is not a play area and store keys out of a child’s reach
