Millions of young children are in early childhood centers or homes on a daily basis. Making sure you are ready to keep yourself and the children in your care safe when a disaster strikes is of upmost 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.
