Safe Spaces: Bullying Prevention for School Age Children

At Kiwassa Neighbourhood House

2 Saturdays April 27 and May 4, 2019

Safe Spaces is a focused, integrated approach to social-emotional development that helps prevent bullying by growing pro-social behaviours. Safe Spaces builds a sense of community where all children, staff, and families feel they are valued and that they belong; this is the foundation of a safe space. Safe Spaces for School-Age Children is designed in four modules and explores several conflict resolution models. Three domains within each module offer a balanced and well-rounded program with ready-to-use resources and ideas that create safe spaces for all children and families in our programs.

Objectives:

• Understand how the Safe Spaces program works.

• Explore the 4 Safe Spaces modules.

• Learn how to implement Safe Spaces in child care programs with school-age children.
