(Length: 30 hours)

The responsibility of educators in the area of safety is omnipresent in their work. They have to provide and maintain a safe environment and be ever concerned for the children's wellbeing. This course focuses on giving students the skills to apply safety measures. In childhood services, these will include: safely preparing the location and material for meals, naps, indoor and outdoor activities; giving sound advice; reminding children of the rules and giving ongoing supervision; acting preventively by identifying hazards; giving any needed and appropriate safety information to children and parents.
