Primary Education: Prep - Year 2
Simple, age-appropriate information and activities are explored over three one-hour sessions. This gentle introduction aims to teach children about their bodies, the role of families, how babies are formed, and how they can keep body-safe.
Sexual intercourse is not covered at this level. Children are encouraged to share stories about their arrival in their family.
Session One - My Family
Who is in my family
How are families similar and different?
Why are families important?
How do people in my family celebrate each other?
Healthy family relationships
Session Two - My Body
Identifying genitals and reproductive organs
Discussing the difference between private and public body parts
Learning body safety (protective behaviours) strategies
Building on the first lesson by identifying 'safe' people in the child's life.
Session Three - Babies
The basics of conception (an egg and a sperm need to come together before a baby can grow)
Body Safety resources have been developed by primary teacher Jayneen Sanders, author of the acclaimed Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept.
Prep - Year 2 modules cannot be booked individually, as each unit builds upon the information learned in the previous session.
