From preventing harm from known safety risks to promoting children’s medical, nutritional, oral and mental health, educators and program directors act as children’s daily protection and support. A new, easy-to-use manual from Gryphon House, Inc. provides educators with the information they need to ensure that the children in their care are safe, while they learn the best practices to stay healthy for life.
Preschool Health and Safety Matters provides up-to-date, vital information for the well-being of children with suggestions, ideas, activities and ways to involve families at home. Whether teaching children how to brush their teeth, dealing with food allergies in the classroom, or determining proper emergency procedures, this manual gives educators and directors the tools they need to ensure that the children in their care are fit, healthy, happy and safe.
Unlike any other book on the market, this manual provides child care workers with specific information on a range of procedures, safety topics and health concerns – covering everything from diversity in the classroom to transportation and pedestrian safety.
