Protective Behaviours

Recommended Books

This programme aims to provide children aged 4-7 years with awareness and strategies for keeping safe. Although it may be difficult to accept, children and young people from any community, including those with disabilities, can be put at risk of harm, abused or hurt, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity.

 All children have the right to be safeguarded from abuse or neglect so they have the opportunity to reach their potential and be successful adults. Protective behaviours teaches children to develop an awareness of personal safety; helps them to identify and express their feelings; make choices and solve problems.
