Health and Safety

Most kids are naturally germy. They tend to touch everything in sight. That is one way they learn about the world around them and that is o.k. That is also one very good reason kindergarten children need to learn about health and safety. Most good online curriculum will include these in their general course of study. Some of the topics may also be covered under the heading of social studies. Typical health and safety topics include, but are not limited to the following:

* Personal hygiene
* Good eating habits
* Good grooming
* Care of teeth
* Major body parts
* Physical fitness
* Safety to and from school
* Safety rules and symbols
* Fire safety
* Safety at home and in the community

You can and should extend your child’s online health and safety lessons in the home and the community so they completely understand the importance of health and safety rules that we all try to follow. Be a good role model for them when you are out and about.
