Please note: Grade 1 lessons use the Second Step® puppets—Puppy and Snail—which aren’t included in the Child Protection Unit. If you don’t have Puppy and Snail, you can purchase them separately, or substitute your own puppets.
Early learning and elementary versions of Modules 2 and 3 are available to meet the needs of those distinct settings.
- Teaching student lessons
- Discussing unsafe or sexually abusive situations with confidence
- Engaging families
Tools to make a difference, for the people who can
Taking a holistic approach to child safety, the unit provides materials and three modules of online training for administrators and all staff members.
Easy-to-follow, scripted lessons teach children personal safety skills using clear, rules-based, and age-appropriate instruction, giving kids the know-how and avenues to disclose abuse.
We’re 35-year veterans in the field of child abuse prevention, and we’ve partnered with leading experts in the field. We’ve also taken our research and we’ve learned about best practices from our Talking About Touching: A Personal Safety Curriculum and applied the best of it to the development of the Child Protection Unit.
