Child Care Aware® of America (CCAoA) and the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC) have launched a new emergency preparedness listserv for child care providers and operators, Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) staff, emergency preparedness experts, and other interested individuals.
The listserv will provide a forum for child care professionals from across the nation to:
- explore current issues,
- share leading practices,
- request assistance,
- pose questions to the community, and
- share resources and ideas that are relevant to the unique needs of child care emergency preparedness.
Topics may include (but are not limited to): creating emergency plans, communicating with families, supporting young children’s emotional needs, protecting child care business records and continuity of operations. There is no cost to sign up for this listserv.
