Emergency Procedures


FIRE
There are three fire extinguishers located in the building. One is in the hallway another at the front door and one in the office. If there is a fire that cannot be extinguished quickly, the children will be evacuated immediately before calling 911. We practice fire drills monthly so the children will be prepared in the event of a fire. The fire evacuation plan is located on file and you are free to view it at any time.

INCLEMENT WEATHER
In the event of a tornado warning, the children will gather in main hallway. We will remain in the hallway until the inclement weather has passed. Tornado drills will also be practiced monthly. The plan is located on file and you are free to view it anytime.

POWER OUTAGE
There are flashlights located in the office. If the power remains out for some time, there are nonperishables located in the kitchen that will be used to eat. If the weather is inclement and the building is getting too cold for the children, you will be called to pick up your child.

POLICY CHANGES
Changes may be made to these policies as needed with 2 weeks’ notice. The policies, contracts, consent and forms will be reviewed and updated, if necessary, in January. Please be assured that you may view the procedures of the Childcare Licensing Policies. The procedures for parents to review a copy of the minimum standards and the child-care center’s most recent Licensing inspection report and instructions on how a parent may contact the local licensing office, DFPS child abuse hotline, and DFPS website.
