Safe Spaces is a focused, integrated approach to social-emotional development that helps prevent bullying by growing pro-social behaviours. Safe Spaces builds a sense of community where all children, staff, and families feel they are valued and that they belong; this is the foundation of a safe space. Safe Spaces for School Age Children is designed in four modules, and explores several conflict resolution models. Three domains within each module offer a balanced and well-rounded program with ready-to-use resources and ideas that create safe spaces for all children and families in our programs.
NOTE: After completing this training participants will be invited to our free Safe Spaces Community of Practice sessions to deepen their learning.
*A certificate for 13 hours of training will be issued upon completion of the 2-days training: 1 hour for reading the pre-reading material (will be emailed 1 week prior to the first day of training) plus 12 hours for attending in class training (6 hours each day).
