COUNSELORS CORNER- September 2016
Good Afternoon Families
Child sexual abuse is increasing at alarming rates. Young children are vulnerable to such abuse even as young as our preschoolers. The State of Missouri has recognized and acknowledged that education and prevention in this area should be implemented with children as young as 3 & 4 years old. As a result, the Francis Howell Early Childhood has committed to and has successfully implemented a Sexual Abuse Prevention program of education for many years now.
Next week your child (with a signed permission slip from a caregiver), will be participating in a presentation called The Body Safety Prevention Program with their classmates. This program is provided by the Child Advocacy Center of St. Charles. During this program, your child will learn the necessary skills needed to prevent them from becoming victims of child sexual abuse. In addition, a packet of materials will be sent home for your education and to assist you in reinforcing the skills learned during the lesson.
If you would like an overview of the program please view the informational video online at “ http://the childcenter.com/prevention-education/. The permission slips was sent home with your child last week. Permission slips can also be found online and at the center. If you would like your child to participate, please sign and return it to your child’s teacher by Monday September 26th . Thank You!
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 636-851-6069.
