Disaster Preparedness

English / Español

Planning for emergencies and disasters builds community and family resilience, supports optimal child development, and promotes healthy and safe child care before, during, and after a disaster.

The California Child Care Disaster Plan

The California Child Care Disaster Plan is an Annex to the California State Emergency Plan. It outlines the roles and responsibilities of key state agencies to support the child care infrastructure in an emergency or disaster. The overall goal of the California Child Care Disaster Plan is to reduce the risk of injury, loss, and destruction for children and staff in child care programs.

California Child Care Disaster Plan supports child care providers to be ready for, respond to, and recover from an emergency. The resources in the Appendix assist child care providers to meet licensing regulations, Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) funding requirements, and best practice recommendations. The Step-by-Step Guide and Emergency Plan Library (checklists, forms, templates, worksheets, and other tools and resources) provide guidance to develop custom emergency plans based on individual child care program needs and local resources.  The California Child Care Disaster Plan is available in English and Spanish and is free to download.

A merged California Child Care Disaster Plan, with the Step-by-Step Guide for Child Care Providers and Emergency Plan Library (124 pages) can be downloaded as one file.  For individual files and resources, see the table below.
