Fire drill at day care
This morning we tested our staff’s readiness to respond quickly and effectively in case of an emergency situation by organising a fire drill.
As part of the Zein protocol we plan multiple emergency evacuation exercises per location, per year. Some of these exercises are purposely announced in advance so that the teachers can discuss the exercise ahead of time with the children in circle times and other activity periods to reduce child anxiety - and some are a surprise.
Although it was a cold morning all went well as the teachers guided the little ones out of the building in a calm and timely manner.
