Elementary School Curriculum

Play it Safe!® is a personal safety curriculum. It is designed to teach children how to be safe from abuse. Abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional, or neglect. There is a separate and specific presentation designed for each grade Pre-K through 6th grade.

The presentation format is classroom-based, so that children are in a familiar environment and able to focus and interact freely. Each presentation lasts approximately one hour and includes an age-appropriate script and 10-20 minute movie.
 


Through age-appropriate stories, elementary school students learn to recognize the three kinds of touch and are empowered with tools to respond using the 3-part safety rule if they are ever in an uncomfortable situation. This safety rule can be applied to many situations that students may encounter on a daily basis, such as bullying and online situations, peer pressure, or exploitation by friends/family. The safety rule encourages assertive responses, whether it is used with strangers or someone the child knows and loves.


Several concepts are reinforced throughout the program:

  • Most people would never touch a child in an inappropriate way.
  • There are three types of touch.
  • Use the 3-part safety rule.
  • It is NEVER too late to tell.
  • Child abuse is NEVER the child’s fault.
