Course Information One of the most important features of any child care program is the extent to which the program and its staff are able to create a healthy and safe environment for all children. Part of creating such an environment is being prepared for unexpected emergencies. Child care facilities that have an emergency plan in place and practice it on a regular basis are better able to protect the children in their care. The purpose of this 2-hour training course is to provide the basic guidelines necessary to develop a disaster preparedness plan for child care facilities that currently enroll or, at some point in the future will enroll, infants and toddlers with special needs. This online course was developed and produced by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service of the Texas A&M University System in cooperation with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Child Care Licensing Division, and using funds provided by the Texas Workforce Commission.
