Kids' Kingdom Learning Center will follow a tornado drill and fire evacuation plan approved by the State Licensing Agency. The Kids' Kingdom preschool will transport children and infants in the vehicles available to the Learning Center such as KKLC vans and personal vehicles in the case of a disaster or emergency evacuation.
Procedures for Notifying Parents of Emergency or Relocation:
- Once the caregivers of the daycare have accounted for all children, Administration will begin to make contact calls/text and inform the parent/guardian or emergency contact (if the parent/guardian) cannot be reached) of the situation and the child's status. The caller will inform the parent or emergency contact of the next action that will be taken to ensure the children's safety. The upcoming actions might include relocation depending on the type of emergency.
- Administration will inform the parent/guardian of when and where they may pick up their child. Relocation sites for Kids' Kingdom Learning Center are Landrum's Country or Center Court of Sawmill Square Mall, both located in Laurel, Mississippi.
- It is the goal of the Kids' Kingdom daycare employees to remain calm in an emergency and comfort each child.
