Increasing Safety Awareness of Preschoolers through a Safety Education Program.
Pickle, Barbara
A preschool director designed and implemented a classroom safety curriculum plan to increase the safety knowledge of preschool children. Implemented for 10 weeks, the plan consisted of classroom lessons, hands on practice, and activities for music, art, and language development. Parent education articles were sent home to reinforce what the children were doing in school. A workshop was designed for camp counselors and was implemented during camp orientation. Observations and discussions with children, teachers, and camp counselors indicated a favorable change in the children's knowledge and application in all three safety areas: pedestrian safety, poison safety, and water safety. Related materials are provided in 17 appendices. (RH)
