Safety and supervision – it’s top priority when it comes to children!
You will learn how to effectively supervise your class, reducing the risk of harm by preventing accidents and injuries as well as promoting positive, responsive and intentional learning environments for children. We discuss how to create safe classroom and outdoor spaces for different age groups and what teachers need to be doing at all times to insure that everyone is accounted for and secure. Handouts provide checklists for evaluating your classroom and playground and additional information about safety.
