safety tips for children

I Know Safety – A colouring book for children

Learn the rules to stay safe at home and in your neighbourhood

Safety education can begin early. This short booklet aimed at children 5 to 8 years old (Kindergarten to Grade 3) makes it easy for them to learn the key rules to stay safe in their homes and out in their communities.

With simple messaging and engaging images to colour, parents and caregivers can use the illustrations to spark discussions about safety. Read the messages together to teach your child about outdoor safety, what to do if there is an emergency, how to react if he/she is approached by a stranger, and how to stay safe online.

Remembering Cst. Graham Holmes

Why is it important to know what is going on around you?

Being aware of the vehicles and activities around me can help keep me safe. I always follow the safety rules when I am boarding a bus, crossing the street or railroad track, bike riding and playing.

Keeping children safe on the Internet…

My image belongs to me. People need my permission to take my picture. Pictures shared online live forever, and can be used inappropriately. If an adult or friend asks to take my picture and I do not want to, I know I can say No thanks. I can also ask them not to share my picture online.
