Is your child ready to stay home alone? The Home Alone Safety for Kids program helps children and their families get ready for their child’s first steps towards independence and being without adult supervision for short periods of time.
This safety program is ideally suited for children aged 9-12 years old. Safety and accident prevention are the common themes throughout the program. The information is relevant and current to today’s young learners. Course content includes:
- Street smarts and bike safety
- People safety (“Tricky People” and Safe strangers)
- Online and internet safety
- Snacking and kitchen safety
- Home fire safety
- Sibling rivalry
- Preventing accidents
- How to handle emergencies and other situations
- Basic first aid skills
The unique delivery model of our Home Alone Safety for Kids program reaches children of all learning-types. Innovative digital and traditional gaming techniques provide a fun and positive learning environment. Engaged participants learn valuable life skills to help them make safer choices when on their own.
All participants who attend our program in-class or through virtual sessions will receive the Home Alone Safety For Kids manual and certificate of attendance.
Home Alone Safety for Kids is also available online and can be completed independently, at your child’s own pace, in the comfort of your own home. The online format may be better suited for children who are unwilling or unable to attend a full-day class session and for parents or caregivers who wish to participate in their child’s training and reinforce key safety messages.
