Preparedness, response and recovery planning within the child care community is essential to ensuring the safety of children, their child care providers, and the greater community. Child care programs provide a foundation for young children’s physical, emotional and cognitive well‐being, and are essential to community recovery in the aftermath of an emergency.

The Connecticut Child Care Emergency Plan was developed to guide the actions of the Office of Early Childhood during times of emergency, and to identify the resources and supports available to providers of child care services in the event of an emergency.

Providers will find resources below to support planning and response in settings where children are served, with additional supports on the website for the CT Child Emergency Preparedness Committee (CEPC) a subcommittee of the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS) Statewide Emergency Management and Homeland Security Advisory Council.
