The Child Center Inc. offers prevention education programs for children, parents, and professionals in the community. The school programs are created for children beginning Pre-K through Middle School, and include topics such as Body Safety, Internet Safety/Online Enticement, and Sexual Harassment. The primary focus of our programs are to educate children about appropriate boundaries and empower victims to disclose abuse to safe and trusted adults.
In addition to educating children we also feel it is important to educate the adults in their life. We want to improve adults’ responses to these disclosures so that children can receive early intervention and protection. We offer Mandated Reporter Training for professionals who work with children and Parent Education Seminars that are tailored to meet the specific needs and concerns of parents, caretakers, and guardians.
