A little over a year ago, Virginia began requiring child care programs to develop emergency preparedness plans. Now, it is time to evaluate our plans, discuss what works and what doesn’t, and update our plans.
We believe that with the proper training and resources the suffering of people affected by disasters can be reduced and possibly prevented.
Resilient communities must have preparation, relief, and recovery systems in place to ensure that children are safe and families can return to their jobs.
As childcare providers, we serve as a resilience hub in the community. The goal of this training program is to increase the capacity of both center-based and home-based child care providers to prepare for, and respond effectively, in the event of emergencies and natural disasters.
This three-hour free training is perfect for family child care providers, center owners and administrators. Feel free to bring your program's emergency preparedness plans. You can make updates as we go through the material.
Any free training that does not have a minimum of 10 registrants must be cancelled.
