June is National Safety Month.
The health and safety of the children in your care is your number one priority. June is National Safety Month so try
to incorporate some of these ideas into your programming:
- review and update your program’s Emergency Plan;
- check the first aid kits throughout the program and update as needed;
- enroll in a first aid/CPR class or other training about safety;
- take the children on an indoor and outdoor safety scavenger hunt and ask them for
ideas on how to make the spaces safer for everyone;
- share information about water safety with families; and
- open the Child Day Care Regulations
for the modality of care you work in, search the word "safe" or "safety" and make sure the program is in compliance.
