This Child Development Associate (CDA) training module, one of a series of 18, provides a guide to establishing a safe and healthy preschool environment and promoting health and safety practices among preschool children. Upon completion of the module, CDA trainees are expected to be able to create a safe learning environment for children, recognize and correct safety hazards, teach and promote safe work and play habits, systematically report safety information to parents, handle emergency situations, and provide emergency treatment for accidents, illness, and injury. Terms are defined and a self-evaluation procedure is indicated in early sections of the module. Subsequent chapters discuss teachers' responsibility for safety in the preschool, ways of teaching safety habits to young children, first aid, and activity development. The module also provides 14 learning activities, ranging from resource unit development to drills for emergency situations, for the CDA trainee. Supplemental reference books and organizations, pamphlets, films, and filmstrips are listed. (RH)
