Transportation

The Day Care does not provide transportation on a regular basis to families. This means that the parents or guardians of the children enrolled are responsible for the transportation their child needs to and from day care. 

The day care must be told if someone other than parents are going to pick up their child at any time, even if the pick-up person is on the appropriate pickup permission form.  Under no circumstance will the day care release any child without written permission or a phone call from the parent.

The Day Care will take periodic field trips.  Parents will be notified well in advance and will be asked to sign a permission form for each event.  The excursions will be by cars that are owned and driven by parents and staff. All cars will have at least the appropriate insurance coverage (100,000/300,000 bodily injury) Proof of this coverage must be given to the director before any day care children are allowed to ride in the vehicle. All children will ride in state-required restraints.  During the summer session some trips will be taken by way of the Trolley.

In the event of an emergency or accident, if the child’s doctor cannot be reached, the staff will consult with our Health Care Consultant, Dr. Lind, or have the child transported to the Falmouth Hospital emergency room via Rescue Squad accompanied by a staff person.
