Parents would like to think that their children are safe when they put them in the care of others. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. The people that dedicate their lives to children in day cares are teachers and professional caregivers, they are not trained to handle life-and-death emergencies. That is why the AngelWatch National Accreditation Program was created.
“In 2018 there where almost 500,000 missing children entries to law enforcement in the United States.”
States mandate minimal training when it comes to Safety and Security. The criteria that the state mandates, lets each center make their own emergency procedures and which then gets approved by the state. Unfortunately, the people that are involved in day cares, preschools and early learning centers are not trained to handle these types of situations.
The reason why? There are no “cookie cutter” techniques or trainings that can be done in a facility. Each facility is different, each facilities classroom are different.
Unfortunately, there are not sufficient qualified personnel to do such specialized training for every Center.
