What a jam packed first term for the team at Body Safety Australia! 

In this edition you can find out about our official launch at Bridge Road Early Learning Centre, read the latest piece in The Age about Body Safety in early years and learn about cybergrooming and the challenges facing schools in addressing students' safety and welfare. 

Our launch ... 

Watch Body Safety Australia in action at Bridge Road Early Learning Centre
Body Safety Australia was established in 2015. As a social enterprise our goal was to create the best, evidence-based violence prevention education program in Australia. We researched and developed, then partnered with a major charity to deliver a pilot program in the Melton area. 

The program was evaluated and refined and, in February 2017, we were ready to officially launch our Superstars program. Download our research results here. Watch the above video to see us in action and contact us at info@bodysafetyaustralia.com.au for incursions, parent workshops and professional learning.

Body Safety Australia can also help your school or organisation become Child Safe Compliant. 

'Don't talk to strangers online.' But what is a stranger?


When children make friends in the park after one session in the sandpit, is it any surprise that they think a person is their friend after playing Minecraft every day after school for a week? 


School Governance recently featured an article by co-founder Deanne Carson about how our kids are being groomed online. Read it here.

In Brief ... 

Together We Grow | The Child in Focus
Co-founder, Deanne Carson will be presenting at a conference for professionals involved in early childhood education from birth to the early years of school. Find out more here. 
The Age | Giggles are Encouraged!
Recently The Age popped in during our kindergarten program. Our Body Safety Early Years program teaches bodily autonomy, assertive communication, and of course, bottoms. Read more here to see what all the giggles were about! 
Be Proactive! | Tip of the Month 
Make it your monthly challenge to ask your child before hugging or kissing and challenge your child to do the same. Discuss the difference between verbal consent (asking) and body language consent (social cues).

Let us know how you go by hitting 'reply'!
