Field Tripsfield trips

  1. In my day care home, field trips apply to school-age children only. Infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers are left at my day care home with my adult assistant in charge.
  2. I will be responsible for the care, safety, and supervision of children on field trips.
  3. Written parental consent will be on file at my home for any field trip.
  4. Parents will be informed when field trips are planned.
  5. All children will wear seat belts if transported by vehicle.
  6. Each child’s file will be carried on field trips.
  7. Staff/child ratios will be maintained on all field trips.
  8. Infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers may participate in short, unscheduled walks without parental notification according to the Missouri Licensing Rules for Family Childcare Homes. I have one double-stroller and one Little Tikes wagon with the extra-high sides that I use to assist me on short walks. Parents will always be told of any unscheduled outing at the end of the day.
