Learning to be safe

Janette Ryan
A project at Monash University is currently investigating a child-centred approach to child safety. There is great potential for developing child-centred safety education programs in schools that allow young children to make informed decisions about the potential risks and dilemmas involved in everyday actions. Such programs can include the development of curriculum resources that develop children’s cognitive understandings of risk management and aim to develop a whole-school safety culture.
