SAFE KIDS 101
Encompass offers safety workshops for youth ages 9 to 13 who are interested in staying home alone. While children sometimes think they are ready for this step, parents often have a difficult time gauging when the time is right. This 3-hour course will help your child towards that next step, while giving parents peace of mind. Participants will learn the responsibilities of being alone, first aid and choking safety, online safety, information on abuse and abduction, and much more.
