According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) more than 40% of businesses never reopen after a disaster. While this is problematic for many community sectors, it is most devastating on the child care industry – with significant ripple effects on children and families. Simply put, if child care programs are closed, parents cannot return to work and recovery cannot begin. Ensuring the continued operation of high-quality child care programs is essential for families, communities, and the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of children.

Virginia has developed new regulations that will make providers aware of the different emergencies that can occur to a child care business and have plans to cope with those emergencies.

To support programs in meeting these regulations, we will deliver a training that will cover topics, such as loss of power/water, medical emergencies, shelter-in-place, fire, floods, gas/chemical leaks, transportation accidents, animal/pet safety, allergies, natural disasters, and acts of violence.

This training is free and open to early childhood providers, with priority given to those accepting state subsidy and serving the infant / toddler population.

Participants should bring their own lunch to this training, and will have a half-hour lunch break.

Please note: Space is limited. Once the class is full, we will create a waitlist.

Statistics show us that one in four children will experience trauma by the age of four. This trauma could be abuse, hunger, homelessness, witnessing violence, medical, or grief. We know that a child’s greatest learning occurs during the early childhood years. These traumas cause behaviors that we see every day in the classroom. As early childhood providers, we need to recognize the signs of trauma, and teach children how to cope with the feelings they experience.

This training will discuss:

  1. Why trauma matters?
  2. How trauma affects the brain?
  3. How trauma affects behavior?
  4. Individual resilience
  5. Community resilience

This training is free and open to early childhood providers, with priority given to those accepting state subsidy and serving the infant / toddler population.
