Child Safety Classes in English at El HaLev

Secure in Ourselves is a 4-part child safety course, created to help children develop their ability to navigate the world with confidence, dignity, and a sense of security.  It was designed by professionals at El HaLev with the goal of preventing sexual, emotional, and physical violence.

Now, for the first time, it is being offered in English and has been adapted to meet the unique needs of children adjusting to life in a new country, and emphasizes the development of confidence and resilience, and the ability to manage conflicts.

Curriculum and Content

Children will:

  • Learn to distinguish between strangers and acquaintances, and how to conduct themselves with each.
  • Work with their parents and guardians to make a list of trusted adults they can turn to.
  • Acquire the vocabulary and ability to talk about confusing, uncomfortable, or threatening situations with trusted adults, as comfortably and clearly as possible.
  • Develop, identify, and set healthy boundaries, both verbally and physically, and recognize levels of risk.
  • Practice simple, effective and age-appropriate self-defense and personal safety skills.
  • Learn to handle and respond to bullying.
  • Strengthen their self-esteem, self-image, and self-confidence.
