The safety of your child is paramount and I have therefore put together the following procedures regarding the transportation of children in my car.
I have a full driving license which is available for you to see on request.
I will ensure my car is in road worthy condition by having it regularly service by a reputable garage.
I will ensure it complies with all legislation, MOT, Car Tax etc.
I will ensure it is covered by Business Use, Car Insurance and the certificate is available for you to see.
I will avoid where possible taking your child to a petrol station, by filling my car up before or after my minded hours.
I will ensure that the child safety locks are in use on my car.
I will always carry a mobile phone with me in case of an emergency, and will use my ‘hands free’ whilst driving or return the call on my return.
I will always carry identification for me and the minded children in case of an emergency.
I will always carry a First Aid kit, in the car incase of an emergency.
I will never leave a child unattended in a car.
I will teach your child about the dangers of cars and roads, in an age appropriate way.
I will advise you in advance if we are making any special trips or long journeys in the car.
If your child suffers from travel sickness please let me know immediately.
I will ensure all car seats are correctly fitted, age and stage appropriate for the children using them and that they are correctly strapped into them, to do this I need to know from you how tall your child is to ensure they are in the correct seat.
If you have any concerns regarding this policy please do not hesitate to contact me.
