Earthplace Preschool Policies and Procedures

Fire Drills

We practice our evacuation procedures on a monthly basis. In the beginning of the year, the Chickadees practice with their teachers, but not with the fire alarm. By the end of the year all classes will have practiced evacuating their room and going to their assigned place on the playground. Here the children stay together in their designated spot and wait until the all-clear is given. We have found that practicing this helps the children better able to respond in a quick and more comfortable manner.
