Our daycare only releases my kid to us, the parents or grandparents or others the kid clearly knows and we have beforehand said would be coming. If we have a change of plans we have to call in to let them know someone else is coming instead of the usual routine.Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

I also think it's important to teach them where to look for help if they get lost, separated, etc. Of course there's the police officer option but there's not always one around. My kids have been told to find a mother who has children with her and ask for help.

I was a latch key kid and we had code words to signal when I was home, if I was trouble, etc. We didn't have one for someone to pick me or my siblings up becaues we knew everyone that would come and get us. If they couldn't come then we didn't go anywhere unless it was the MPs/Police and even then it would stil require an adult we knew.
With my kids well hell I think anyone would give them back immediately!
Still my wife insists that we raise them and protect them so we have our own SOP.______

Reading an article today reminded me of this thread.
"I was going to kindergarten and there was a man and a woman," Luo says. "I thought they were friends of my father so I went with them.
"I was transferred from car to car. Later on I was told I was in a mountainous area in Fujian province."
The bewildered schoolboy had been taken to Sanming, 1,500 km (900 miles) away where life with a completely different family awaited him. Luo was given a new name and introduced to a new sister.
He had become one of thousands of children abducted every year in China, very few of whom will ever return home. The country's one-child policy and lax adoption laws has fuelled an underground market for trafficked children. Earlier this year a police chief in Fujian claimed over 10,000 children had been trafficked in 2012 in his province alone.Surfing Facebook at work?

We also taught about inappropriate touching and that many times (most in fact) it was by someone known by the family.
Stranger Danger was another one with the instance of someone in a vehicle looking for a puppy/dog.
These are conversations any parent should have with a child. How much they remember when a situation is taking place is dependent, in part, on the emphasis one makes to the importance of the situation.
You can't pick up a kid from our school system without first being registered with the school as being able to do so. HS even requires a scan of your driver's license and a photo made on the spot by the same machine to enter the school by the front doors.Carter Hargrave's Jeet Can't Do
