Preventive Safety - Life Skills
Safety education is a fundamental component of childhood development and has always been our primary focus we have been tirelessly improving our practice in this area. After all, there’s no room for errors when it comes to protecting our children therefore, safety education has to be effective with an accurate, structured and comprehensive source of content covering every aspect of a child’s safety.
