Disaster prevention education is the basic task in enhancing and promoting disaster prevention work. Taiwan is the top country among those exposed to the risks of multiple disasters in the world. Therefore, it is essential to implement disaster prevention education to help children develop good habits and skills for disaster prevention during their early childhood. This article introduces and analyzes the spirit and practice of disaster prevention education for young children in Japan, as its natural environmental is very similar to Taiwan. Based on Japan’s experiences, we reached a tri-fold conclusion, which we believe would be a good reference for the development of disaster prevention education for young children in Taiwan. The first is educational policy. Concrete educational laws and regulations should be established and laws-based policy for disaster prevention education should be seriously practiced. The second is educational content. An Integrated curriculum and various teaching materials should be developed to meet young children’s needs. The third is the practice of community participation. Promotion mechanisms connecting young children, their parents and the communities they belong to should be established and encouraged. By doing so, we expect the spirit, knowledge and skills of disaster prevention can be rooted in young children’s minds and thus pave a brighter path for disaster prevention education in the future.
