The Second Step Bullying Prevention Unit for Kindergarten–Grade 5 builds on children’s social-emotional skills to teach them how to recognize, report, and refuse bullying through story-based lessons and award-winning videos. Based on the latest research, the unit also features innovative online training for every adult in school.
The Second Step Child Protection Unit begins with training that helps schools develop policies and procedures to keep kids safe and teaches all staff to recognize signs of possible abuse and respond if a child discloses. Students in Early Learning through Grade 5 learn about personal safety in age-appropriate lessons, and family materials facilitate safety discussions at home.
“We want all of our children to feel safe and secure when they come to school and be able to concentrate on getting the best possible education. ‘Second Step’ allowed our school district to have a Pre/K to eighth-grade program, with every school using a common language.”
