GAIT ENSURES CHILD SAFETY AT YOUR SCHOOL
There is nothing more precious for a parent than their child and nothing more important for a society than the safety of their children. In the words of Sir Nelson Mandela “There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way it treats its children”

It is most important today more than anytime else to empower our children towards being more aware of themselves and their surroundings. Awareness comes when children can understand and make decisions for themselves about what is safe and unsafe for them. This can be with regards to their body, their feelings, touch and their surroundings. A safe and nurturing school environment encourages a child to actively take part in school activities, develop healthy social skills and feel more confident.

AIM
To empower children to be more aware of themselves and their surroundings to understand what is safe or unsafe

Child Safety Curriculum
It is important for a child to be aware of their body, the way they are feeling and the space around them, for them to understand themselves better. Through this understanding/ knowledge comes the wisdom to make choices that are right for the child. Through creative movement approach we are hoping to reach out to children to help them understand and make the right choices and decisions.
The curriculum is being designed using the concept of Creative Movement. This methodology will make this unit experiential and through experience children will understand better.
