The Goal of the Care For Kids program is to prevent child sexual abuse through health education and prevention.
Care For Kids is a comprehensive community approach to fostering healthy sexual development in early childhood. The curriculum promotes adults understanding of children’s sexual development; open, comfortable communication between adults and children about sexuality; and adult responsibility for the safety and healthy development of children.
The Care For Kids curriculum includes developmentally appropriate activities and message that enhance the development of children’s self-esteem, respect for self and others, rewarding human relationships, and the avoidance of sexual coercion.
The Care For Kids curriculum uses six themes to communicate positive messages to children. The first three themes develop self-esteem and positive attitudes toward sexuality and gender. The last three themes develop an understanding of body boundaries and coping with boundary violations. The themes can be easily incorporated into already existing curriculum within the early childhood setting.
