Video – Children in a Changing Climate: The Importance of Childcare Providers in Disasters

with No Comments

This 48-minute presentation discusses the importance of childcare providers in disasters and other critical situations, and reports that 21 states and Washington, DC, don’t require schools and childcare providers to have basic emergency plans. It focuses on the critical role childcare providers may play in a child’s outcome before, during, and after a disaster. It references the book, The Children of Katrina, to present real world examples from Hurricane Katrina, when childcare providers served as advocates and anchors for the children in their care.
