Awards and Recognition


Leadership

Children under the age of 6 spend an average of 35 hours a week in childcare

Why We Care

Children are among the most vulnerable populations to disaster. At the same time, children have incredible resiliency powers. We can teach them how to stay safe and help others too.


Children under the age of 6 spend an average of 35 hours a week in some sort of childcare arrangement. We need to consider the real possibility that our children will not be at home with us when disaster strikes. Childcare providers (including the nanny or the babysitter) may be the first responder. We owe it to them to train them to be able to succeed in that role.


Finally, childcare is "critical infrastructure." Communities don't recover from disaster if parents can't go back to work. If childcare doesn't recover, the community will be impacted. We want to increase the odds that childcare recovers from  disaster. When they do, everyone wins.
