“S.A.F.E. for Kids” (4 hours)
This class is designed for children 5-14 years old, with a maximum class size of 20 students.
During our 4 hour (average) block training, students will learn to:
S – can
A – void
F – ight
E – scape
The class is comprised of three major parts.
PART 1 – Our classroom portion is designed to get the kids thinking. Through research, it has been determined that children do not perceive danger the way adults do. Our goal is to show the students that there are dangers in this world that they need to be conscious of. It is important for children to understand the potential for danger, but not to live in fear.
PART 2 – The personal protection portion utilizes very simple techniques that even our youngest students can master. Keep Them S.A.F.E. understands that no child would win in a prolonged fight against an adult. That is why we teach our students to fight just enough to get away and escape.
PART 3 – Scenario based testing is used to evaluate each student. This not only test the child’s knowledge and readiness, but also builds self confidence in the students.
Before the class concludes a “ChildPrint ID Kit®” is issued and completion instructions given to the parents and/or guardians of each child. This kit assists parents in easily creating a confidential and extremely comprehensive record of their child’s personal and medical information, to keep at home for use in an emergency. When a child is missing, first few hours are crucial to recovery. During this very emotional time, parents often search for current photos and cannot always remember their child’s most basic characteristics. ChildPrint® enables parents to immediately give police a complete and accurate description, saving precious time, and hastening the search. In addition, ChildPrint® includes two pages of important safety tips, because education is essential to helping kids avoid dangerous situations.
