Natural and manmade disasters can happen anywhere and at any time. During the last decade, the United States has experienced an unprecedented number of emergencies and unfortunately, these are liable to continue. When emergencies occur, those most vulnerable are our youngest citizens, children under 5 years of age.

Increasingly, children of this age are separated from their parents during the hours when emergencies may occur because they are in childcare settings. On average, during a normal work week, young children spend more than 36 hours a week in childcare. Regardless of whether they are licensed or unlicensed, large, or small, center-based, or a family childcare home, when a local, state, or national emergency occurs a childcare program may be impacted. Childcare programs are particularly vulnerable to disasters since children at this age are not able to protect themselves from harm.

Parents and employers depend on childcare programs to protect the #health, #safety, and well-being of children when employees are at work. Communities depend on childcare so emergency personnel will be available to protect residents during emergencies.   

Emergency #preparedness training at work, at home, and in the community is everyone's responsibility.  Making sure you are ready to keep yourself and the children in your care safe when a disaster strikes is of the utmost importance. As a trusted and loved figure in children’s lives, you are also on the front lines of helping children recover and heal after disasters. 

ChildCareEd can provide you and your program with the necessary #emergency-preparedness training that state and federal agencies require. We offer emergency and disaster preparedness training in two different formats.

In order to complete this training and obtain a certificate of completion, participants will need to create an Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Plan. ChildCareEd has developed an easy to use Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Plan template that allows users to input their information and details of the plan specific to their child care facility. Once the plan has been completed it will reviewed for approval by ChildCareEd staff and users will receive their certificate as well as a PDF of their Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Plan document.
