MESSAGE FROM THE ADMINISTRATION FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
“Look Before You Lock”
15 children have already died in 2012 from heat stroke after being left in unattended vehicles. In 2011, a total of 33 similar deaths were confirmed. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is taking an active role in getting the word out about the safe transportation of children. ACF has teamed up with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Safe Kids USA to promote the “Look Before You Lock Campaign.” As the first line of defense for children in Head Start and Child Care programs, Linda Smith, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Early Childhood Development at ACF, speaks to Head Start and child care providers about the importance of double checking cars, vans and buses for children that may have been left behind. Please help us get the word out and raise awareness by sharing this message with Child Care and Head Start providers, as well as early childhood organizations and networks in your State and community.
