Safely Home Child Passenger Safety Program

In light of the Shelter in Place order, we are unable to accommodate in-person car seat checks. Please refer to the online resources below. Development of virtual seat checks and educational classes is anticipated to be available in May 2020.

Research finds that nearly 3 out of 4 car seats are misused and over 90% of new parents are using their car seats incorrectly on their first ride home from the hospital. Through our Child Passenger Safety Program, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford provides parents and caregivers the education they need to keep their children safe in the car.
