School Based Education
We provide presentations for children grades K-5 using the Child Safety Matters® program, created by the Monique Burr Foundation. The program empowers children to spot and respond to bullying, cyberbullying, child abuse, and digital dangers. Most importantly, it teaches that adults are
responsible for their safety but there are things they can do to help adults keep them safe. The program is based on the latest research and has been reviewed and endorsed by national experts. This curriculum meets Erin&Law (SB 856) when implemented in four sessions.
The Child Safety Matters® presented in two lessons ranging from 35-55 minutes (or in four shorter lessons) in an in-person or virtual classroom setting. Lessons include PowerPoint lecture, group discussions, videos, and fun games and activities. Throughout these lessons, children will learn five easy-to-remember Safety Rules that they can use to help the adults in
their lives keep them safe.
