This program is for students in grades 3-6.
Knowing when your child is ready to stay home alone is a difficult decision, and preparation can make the transition much easier for you and your child! Home Alone Safety is a readiness program that helps prepare your child while building self-confidence, a sense of responsibility, and proper decision making abilities. This program is a stepping stone for younger grades as they explore and become comfortable with the idea of being home, and for older grades to better understand and gain confidence with being home alone.
