Care For Kids

Care For Kids: A Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Curriculum
ACT 1 requires that all schools 1) educate children about sexual abuse, 2) educate school staff about child sexual abuse and 3) inform parents about child sexual abuse. Unfortunately, in recent years, we have all become aware that the sexual abuse of young children is more common in our society than we would like to believe. ACT 1 is the law enacted in March of 2009 that is dedicated to improving Vermont’s Sexual Abuse Response System.
On November 1, 2012 a representative from Prevent Child Abuse Vermont will be here to provide a parent information workshop on the topic of recognizing and preventing child sexual abuse and to review the Care for Kids curriculum that will be implemented by Chittenden East Counselors in the winter of 2013. All families and community members are encouraged to attend. Look for more information coming soon. The following link from the Vermont Agency of Human Services Department for Children and Families is very informative: http://dcf.vermont.gov/sites/dcf/files/pdf/protectkids/GuideforParents.pdf
