Safe With You: Scottsbluff
December 12 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm MST
Safe With You is a training curriculum for child care providers to meet the requirements of the Nebraska State Statute 43-2606. This bill requires licensed child care providers to complete training that “shall be designed to meet the health, safety, and developmental needs of children…and shall include information on sudden infant death syndrome, shaken baby syndrome and child abuse and neglect.” The Nebraska Department of Education Early Childhood Training Center (ECTC) has developed these workshops in collaboration with the Department of Health and Human Services.
There are three modules to the training:
- Safe Sleep for Infants
- Never Shake a Baby – Preventing Abusive Head Trauma
- Power to Protect: Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect
Do you know how to reduce the risk of Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) and prevent accidental suffocation? Do you know the safest way to put a baby to sleep? Do you have a safe sleep policy? If you answered NO to any of these questions, this workshop is for you.
Everyone is at risk of shaking a baby. When a baby is shaken, the shaking can cause brain damage, life changing disabilities, and even death. This is one childhood injury that is preventable.
Child abuse and neglect unfortunately happens in Nebraska. Child care providers need to know about child abuse and neglect, how to make a report, ways to strengthen families, and how to prevent child abuse in their own child care programs.
Online registration is open until December 10th at 5:00 p.m.
