Metas y objetivos de aprendizaje:

Active shooter preparedness training for early childhood professionals is a critical component to keeping child care programs safe and secure. Unfortunately, active shooter events are on the rise. There were 692 mass shootings in 2021, and child care professionals need to train for these events just as they would for a fire, tornado, flood, or earthquake. 

 

We designed our training course to meet the specific needs of early childhood professionals. We provide lectures, discussion, and hands-on activities designed to make your staff more prepared and empowered. We work with teachers in the classroom to develop and test response strategies and techniques. A typical course runs 3 hours, but any training can be customized to fit your schedule. To keep groups manageable, we usually conduct the session to 50 participants at a time. 

 

At our active shooter preparedness training and workshops, participants learn evidence-based techniques and strategies on how to prepare for and respond to an active shooter incident. Participants learn how to conduct drills, develop a customized plan, and work together to ensure staff, teachers, and children are best prepared. The course also features a hands-on portion, where the tools and techniques discussed in the class are put to use. 

 

We are aware of other companies providing active shooter preparedness training with simulated violence and gunfire. We condemn these types of training, and we never simulate gunfire or perform unannounced drills during our active shooter preparedness training. Our training sessions are conducted in a calm, safe, and comfortable environment. Read a letter from our Executive Director, Andrew Roszak, about the dangers of simulated violence and unannounced drills.

The course teaches childcare professionals how to increase program safety and security. Childcare professionals will gain knowledge, and techniques to ensure the safety of the children in their care.

Metas y objetivos de aprendizaje:

Nuestro programa de capacitación brinda a los profesionales de la primera infancia la experiencia práctica que necesitan para familiarizarse con las operaciones de extintores de incendios:

  • Conozca las diferencias entre los tipos de extintores de incendios.

  • Requisitos de mantenimiento

  • Use un extintor de incendios con el método PASS

Metas y objetivos de aprendizaje:

Situational awareness means being aware of your surroundings. The sooner you can identify things that are out of place, the more time you have to respond and react. This is especially important in a child care setting, as young children rely on providers to protect them and keep them safe. In our situational awareness online training, participants will learn and gain resources from a mix of slides, real-life videos, and graphics. Participants will learn how to create a culture of safety and awareness.

Metas y objetivos de aprendizaje:

Thousands of home visits are performed every year by Head Start and Early Head Start programs, teachers, family therapists, Child Protective Services, and many other government and licensing organizations. Most agencies enter the privacy of a family’s residence without any type of training on how to conduct a safe visit. The Institute for Childhood Preparedness has developed a course which addresses specific concepts that every family and childcare professional need to know to make visits as safe as possible. This course will cover basic concepts for pre-planning the visit, arriving safely, conducting the visit, departing the area, and after the visit activities, including checklists for staying safe.

This course teaches the warning signs of domestic abuse, drug/alcohol abuse, and aggressive behavior. The attendees will learn techniques to keep everyone safe during a home visit.

Resource Booklets available for separate purchase - the booklets include references, checklists, talking points, reminders, tips and resources.

Metas y objetivos de aprendizaje:

Cyber attacks are at all time highs and early childhood programs are not immune. The three most attacked industries in 2022 included education, government and research. In fact, a recent study out of the United Kingdom found that one out of every four child care programs experienced a cyber attack in the past year. Given this new threat, early childhood programs are encouraged to revisit their digital footprint, policies and procedures. The presentation on "Cybersecurity for Early Childhood Professionals" offers a comprehensive look at the current digital landscape and the potential impact on your early childhood program. Recognizing the increasing integration of technology into all facets of early education – from enrollment to classroom management, the course highlights potential risks and threats that early childhood programs may encounter in cyber space and provides leading practices to help increase the cyber security of your organization.
