    5yo on long bus ride?

    If the kids and I relocate, DD will have at least a 20 minute bus ride to get to Kg, which I'm really nervous about. She'll have just turned 5, and is about average size. I just don't see how a small child is safe on a school bus, plus my mom just informed me it goes off the road about once a year (there's a big hill leading to the school). Am I just being neurotic, or should I be worried about this? Do busses allow you to install a carseat? Or will it be safest if I drive her each day? I don't know if that's going to be logistically possible, as I don't know what I'm going to be doing for work yet (though I have applied to drive a bus..., maybe dd's?).

    Any thoughts?

    ETA: Ignore the spelling mistakes in the poll, apparently I'm more tired than I thought!
