Car Seat Basics Workshop

Every year we have learned more and more about what parents know and don’t know about car seats. It has come to our attention that parents just want more education! A little more education about car seat basics will help reduce injuries due to improper installation and/or improper fitting.

Topics Covered:

  • Understanding your car seat options
  • Rear-facing convertibles
  • High-back belt placement
  • Low-back belt placement
  • LATCH systems vs. seatbelts
  • Understanding what a tether is
  • Car seat add on’s: What is okay and not okay to use

Who Should Attend this Event?

We encourage

  • Parents 
  • Grandparents
  • Foster parents
  • Or anyone who is in charge of any kid(s) in car seats

to attend. Safety is our priority!
