Early Years Online Safety Training

It might seem too soon to start online safety training, but did you know that 52% of 3-4 year olds go online for an average of 9 hours a week? They’re rushing ahead of us and are an especially-high-risk group. We cannot ignore the need for education and awareness in early years – even if it does seem to be at such a young age. It really is never too early to address online safety for children.

We deliver tailored internet safety training for preschool and early years settings, designed to introduce the concepts surrounding online safety in a way that is accessible and complementary to the EYFS statutory framework.

Recommended duration

30 minutes

What do we cover?

Our sessions will cover the key messages relevant to online safety for under 5s. Our work in developing the Education for a Connected World framework gives us an industry-leading foundation from which to create the perfect training for children aged 3-5. We can also work with you to include specific focuses or topics if you have a particular concern or need.

We understand that children and young people learn when they are watching and listening, but learn best when they are taking part. With this in mind, our sessions are highly interactive.  Finally, we will signpost to resources designed specifically for this age group.

What else do you get?

As well as the 30-minute session with one of our consultants you also get:

  • A free copy of Digiduck (an online safety book specifically designed for children aged 3-7)

  • A free game resource to use in the classroom (coming soon)
