The A-B-C Learn Safety With Me program is a comprehensive, innovative program that teaches three to six-year-old children the basics of safety, personal hygiene, their alphabet, and numbers. When the child is introduced to a new number or alphabet, a corresponding safety rule is also taught. The suggested activities are designed to be taught in 30-minute increments and to complement a child development center's current curriculum, not replace it. The A-B-C Learn Safety With Me program is based on the two comprehensive, age-appropriate child safety books pictured below, The ABC's and 123's of Child Safety, and our bilingual version, A-B-C Learn Safety With Me.
The program was designed to fill a void in the child safety area specifically for three to six-year-old children. The books that are currently available for this age group generally touch upon one or two safety topics. In our books and program, we introduce a range of safety topics from A-Z on subjects such as - stranger awareness, bullying, fire and pool safety, animal safety, car seat safety, not keeping secrets, inappropriate touching to personal hygiene issues, such as brushing their teeth and washing their hands. All of the safety topics are taught using age-appropriate language in a fun, non-scary way and interwoven in between learning their numbers and alphabet.
Once the children have mastered all of the concepts, staying safe will be as natural to them as saying their ABC's! In the past two years, over 7,500 children have benefited from the information taught in the program.

"How to Deal With Strangers Safely" is a 40-minute PowerPoint safety program, developed specifically for 2nd through 5th-grade students, using a cast of multicultural kids. During this program, kids learn the difference between "Good Strangers/Trusted Adults" and "Bad Strangers/Tricksters". They will learn how to effectively use the buddy system, different tricks or stories that a predator may use to lure a child, what to do if someone attempts to grab them, where to go and how to avoid being put in that situation.
After completing the presentation, all the kids take a safety pledge and are declared members of the All-Star Safety Patrol Kids and charged with teaching safety to others and making smart, safe choices! They are also tasked with being kinder to one another and paying acts of kindness forward.
