When it comes to choosing the right daycare with transportation for your kids, you want a safe and reliable option. But, there are many things you need to consider when looking for a good bus company that can transport your children to and from school each day.
In the United States, families with working parents spend an average of 8% of their income on child care. That’s a lot of money. But, it’s not always easy to find affordable daycare with transportation in your area.
A daycare with transportation can be a great choice for working parents who need flexible child care options. However, the cost of providing transportation for your children to and from daycare can be expensive. You’ll need to budget for vehicle expenses, gas, maintenance, insurance, safety training and more. Often, the best option for working parents is to use an established transportation service that can meet all of your child’s needs.
STSCO provides bus transportation for students attending private/parochial and home daycares. Parents/guardians must complete a Private/Parochial/Home Daycare Transportation Request form each year. Forms must be submitted by the deadline of July 1 to guarantee transportation for the next school year.
The forms also require a five-day-a-week pick-up and drop-off schedule for each child’s busing location. For example, you cannot pick up your child at one location M,W,F and another location Tuesdays & Thursdays. This is a safety and scheduling requirement that we must adhere to under our contract with the bus operator.
