Transportation and Trip Forms

Please review the following clarification charts from DECAL as of 10/5/12 listed below.  These charts represent the rules that were clarified by DECAL and DPH with assistance from the State's Attorney General.


Providers may no longer be able to transport children to and from home to a center using a MFAB. Additionally, all children under 5 years of age must be in a child  restraint system while being transported in a MFAB or a van.  This law has not changed, however it appears that many providers may have been unaware that MFAB were included.
