Child safety is the chief concern for parents and a safe environment allows students to flourish and grow, and it is a prerequisite for effective learning.

According to Safe Kids Worldwide, unintentional injury is the leading killer of children between the ages of one and 14.

Many injuries and deaths can be prevented by teaching parents and children simple ways to avoid the most common risks at home (fires, burns, scalds and poison) and at play (playground).
