Thoughtful and timely, this book will help readers learn how to create an everyday preschool environment in which children feel safe; and, how to provide for children's safety in a variety of emergency situations without creating an atmosphere of fear. Coverage identifies positive steps teachers can take to deal with their own fear as well as children's fears; ways to set-up both indoor and outdoor areas with safety in mind; how to prepare for emergencies without worrying children; and, how to teach safe behavior through play. Most of the strategies discussed are presented in checklist format and followed by activities for involving children in the strategy's message and lists of relevant children's books. For prospective early childhood educators, or those promoting the health, safety, and nutrition in a preschool environment.
