The NSW Office of the Children’s Guardian has launched a series of four books aimed at early education services that promote protective behaviours and children’s rights.
The SAFE series features the characters of Sam, Andy, Fiona and Eve and according to the Children’s Guardian the books will help children identify the parts of their body that are private; help them understand their feelings; and encourage them to think about five people who they trust to help them if they feel scared, sad or upset.
The Guardian will also be rolling out a series of workshops in NSW to support the rollout of the books. A full list of upcoming sessions can be viewed here.
The Office of the Children’s Guardian is an independent government agency that works to protect children by promoting and regulating quality, child safe organisations and services.
