The Safe Talk & Play Prevention Education Program is designed for preschool and young children. Children have opportunities for children to  interact casually with caring and calming adults in a manner that actually feels to them like "playing in a safe setting." 

Our prevention education groups for young children use the following curricula/topics:

Hands Are Not for Hitting
Hands  are for playing, creating, helping, working, learning, encouraging, taking care of oneself, and so many more good things.  This curriculum presents charming new illustrations along with the familiar encouraging message of the original book. 
The Quit It! Program helps prevent bullying among children from ages 5 through 9. The program consists of nine classroom lessons designed to help you students explore bullying and develop ways to prevent it. 

The lessons  include problem-solving assignments, games and exercises that help young children learn. Leaders use a variety of reproducible worksheets and family activities.
It helps young children understand that violence is never okay, that they can manage their anger and other strong feelings, and that they are capable of positive, loving actions.  Our group leaders work with children at an especially appropriate age -  when they are interacting more with others and starting school.  The groups present simple and fun concepts children need to know . . .  that hitting is unacceptable and that there are many things kids can do with their hands instead of hitting.

Hands Are Not for Hitting is appropriate for childcare settings, as well as for preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school classrooms.
