Second Step Child Protection Unit Kindergarten–Grade 5 Bundle
Working together to keep kids safe from abuse
Keeping children safe is a role many adults share. The research-based Second Step Child Protection Unit gives teachers the tools to recognize and respond to abuse and the confidence to comfortably teach students about this sensitive subject. This Kindergarten–Grade 5 bundle includes age-appropriate lessons on safety, not keeping secrets, and touching.
The Child Protection Unit includes training to help educators and staff prevent child abuse. Training modules prepare administrators, teachers, counselors, and staff to recognize, report, and respond appropriately.

It’s important that families understand what’s being taught in schools, especially with sensitive subjects. We’ve created a set of educational materials to explain what students are learning, alleviate anxiety, and provide guidance for talking to kids about safe and unsafe touch. Family letters help explain the program and adults’ role in child protection. Take-home activities and online videos further reinforce skills and encourage family discussions.
