MBF Child Safety Matters® – Pre-K is an introductory personal safety program for preschool children, ages 4 – 5. The curriculum was created and reviewed by child psychologists and early childhood educators and meets many Pre-K instructional standards and health education standards.
The lessons are age- and developmentally appropriate and include fun and engaging activities for children, as well as additional optional activities that can be used for reinforcement of the lesson content. Each lesson is approximately 20-30 minutes and is easy to deliver using a turnkey script and visual cards (no technology required) or using scripts and visual card PowerPoints (if technology is available).
Facilitator training is available for educators and others who will present the program to children. The program can also be presented in home settings one on one with a parent and child by home visitors.
The Pre-K curriculum consists of four lessons based on the MBF 5 Safety Rules and one optional lesson as follows:
Lesson 1: General Safety Information and Safety Rule #1
Lesson 2: Safety Rule #2
Lesson 3: Safety Rule #3 and Safety Rule #4
Lesson 4: Safety Rule #5
Lesson 5: Bullying and Digital Safety (Optional lesson)
For Schools/Early Childhood Education Centers/Home Visitor Programs
There’s not a child in the world who can’t benefit from this program. There are so many instances where we see children who have been damaged and hurt. Things happened to them and we think, if they’d only had this program, if they’d only had the benefit of this education, that might not have happened to them. If we can prevent that from happening to a single child, then it’s worth all the effort we have put forth.
The MBF Teen Safety Matters curriculum hosts an in-depth approach to important social and safety concerns relevant to youth. The program content is age-appropriate with engaging activities, jargon, and realistic situations to positively promote a relatable and impacting learning experience…Teen Safety Matters is an educational benefit to all parties involved – students, parents, facilitators, and schools.
I heard about the program through my son. He came home…and showed me the safety rules. I cannot thank the Foundation enough; to have other people who are also concerned about my child’s safety and the safety of other kids is wonderful. I especially like the program’s focus on the prevention side.
