A damage assessment of your facility or home after an emergency is crucial for your early childcare education program to open again. Assessments will differ based on the type of emergency your program, center, or home experienced.
Resources to help you complete a damage assessment:

- Hurricane: https://www.childcareaware.org/our-issues/crisis-and-disaster-resources/caregiver-and-ccrr-tools-publications-and-resources/hurricanes/

Ensure that your early childcare education program has been given the all clear from licensing and emergency officials before reopening. If you are in a Head Start program, reach out to your Head Start program specialist for assistance with your damage and needs assessment.
