According to the Federal Emergency Management agency, more than 40% of businesses never reopen after a disaster. This can be devastating for the child care industry, with significant ripple effects on children, families and staff. Ensuring the continued operation of high-quality child care programs is essential to families, staff and the physical, emotional and mental well-being of children. This training, developed by Child Care Aware of America, models how to develop and execute emergency preparedness systems to address the immediate needs of the children, families, staff and the continued operation of program.
