Health and Safety for Children's Services Paraprofessionals

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

School aged children are a special population, because they are more self-sufficient as they grow, yet are still young children without a fully developed sense of personal safety. Keeping school aged children safe and healthy is the constant and primary requirement of all adult caretakers. This course has been developed for staff who work with parents and families of school aged children aged 5-12 years. In this course, you will learn about how to secure home and classroom environments to maximize safety, how to safely transport children, and special considerations for disaster planning. You will explore common hazards, including poisons, venomous plant and animals, and common home risks. We will review familiar problems, such as managing storage and securing electrical outlets. We will also address less familiar concerns such as internet safety and bullying prevention. Sanitation and cleaning considerations and transportation concerns for school aged children will also be addressed.
