Emergency Preparedness

What to know

Emergencies and disasters can happen any time. Early care and education (ECE) providers are a key part of the infrastructure in any community, whether in a childcare center, family home, or individual care.

Plan and prepare

Taking steps early can help protect the students in ECE programs. ECE providers can play a role by planning and preparing for emergencies, protecting young children by caring for them during emergencies, and by helping children cope and recover after an emergency.
