Intended Audience: Primary Teachers

Act for Kids would like to invite your Grade 1 students to receive this FREE protective behaviours program.

Act for Kids developed a free evidence-based Protective Behaviours program targeted at 5- 7 year olds called, "Learn to be safe with Emmy and friends".

 This program was developed in 2007 and has since been delivered to over 10, 000 children, across 400 classrooms in 100 schools. The teacher feedback and child responses to the program are exceptional.

Learn to be safe with Emmy and friends teaches children the knowledge and skills to help them identify and respond to risky situations using interactive games, colourful resources and child-friendly language.

The benefits of this program is having a trained Act for Kids facilitator going into the classroom and embedding the safety concepts across 5 one hour sessions to ensure they retain the message.
