MBF Child Safety Matters® – Pre-K is an evidence-informed program developed to introduce personal safety concepts to 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.
The lessons are age- and developmentally appropriate, based on research, 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, requiring no technology to present. Facilitator training is available for educators and others who will present the program to children.
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)
Additional reinforcement materials are also available.
We are currently piloting the MBF Child Safety Matters – Pre-K program. Program availability, release date, and pricing information coming soon.
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.
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.
The MBF Child Safety Matters program is impressive. This important information is well formulated and well presented, developmentally appropriate, and based on good understanding of literature.
