Preschoolers are active, curious and trusting – that’s what makes them so wonderful! Those same characteristics, however, can inadvertently put a child in harm’s way.
At Kid Spa Austin, we begin teaching toddlers and preschoolers how to make safe and healthy choices. But, of course, we know that classroom instruction isn’t enough. Children need clear and consistent messaging from their parents, family and community members as well.
The good news is that safety lessons don’t have to be taught in a formal setting. In fact, everyday life is the best place for children to practice making safe choices!
