Keeping Child Serving Programs Across Maryland and Virginia Safe and Prepared!

Continued Partnership for Safer Childhood Programs: Institute for Childhood Preparedness Proud to Continue Partnerships with the Abilities Network and Child Care Aware of Virginia


In an exciting development for the early childhood education community, the Institute for Childhood Preparedness is thrilled to announce its continued partnership with both the Abilities Network and Project ACT in Maryland and Child Care Aware of Virginia. This ongoing collaboration promises to bring cutting-edge training and support to early childhood programs across Maryland and Virginia, elevating their emergency preparedness, safety, and security measures.



Through its partnership with the Abilities Network, early childhood providers in Maryland will have access to an array of emergency preparedness, safety, and security training sessions - including ask the expert live consultations. These trainings, each approved by the Maryland State Department of Education for continuing education credit, are set to equip providers with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate any unexpected situation.


Thanks to the continued collaboration with Child Care Aware of Virginia, the Institute will host a series of in-person events and activities throughout the State of Virginia. These engaging programs are designed to foster a community of early childhood professionals who are dedicated to enhancing the safety and security of their child-serving programs. By coming together, these professionals will have the opportunity to review and refine their existing procedures, all while sharing insights and best practices.


The Institute for Childhood Preparedness is truly grateful for the chance to contribute to the advancement of early childhood education safety. As we navigate the ever-evolving landscape of child care, these partnerships enable us to further empower educators and providers with the skills they need to protect those in their care. The dedication of Abilities Network and Child Care Aware of Virginia to this cause aligns seamlessly with our mission, and we are honored to continue this journey together.


Training opportunities will be available throughout the fall and winter and also during the spring of 2024. Those interested are encouraged to stay updated by following the Institute for Childhood Preparedness on Facebook and regularly checking our events page on the website.


The Institute for Childhood Preparedness is committed to fostering safer, more secure environments for children in early childhood programs, and these partnerships reflect that commitment in action. Together with Abilities Network and Child Care Aware of Virginia, we are dedicated to shaping a brighter and safer future for our youngest learners.
