By Linda Mortexperienced nursery teacher and Educational Director of Child’s Eye Media.

How can we help young children learn to keep themselves safe as they explore their world, without worrying them unduly? Linda Mort explains…

Safer strangers

All parents and practitioners want to help children become resilient, capable and independent, and to keep themselves safe as they find out about the world they live in. A good starting-point is to explain how ‘people who help us’, for example, uniformed police officers, community support officers, traffic wardens, school-crossing patrol persons, shopkeepers and checkout assistants, can help children if they get lost.

‘Young children are vulnerable. They develop resilience when their physical and psychological well-being is protected by adults’

(Early Years Foundation Stage: Principles into Practice: A Unique Child Keeping Safe, 1.3)
