Preschool Safety Concerns - What to look for?

Preschool safety should be one of your biggest concerns before you start teaching or entertaining your kids.

There are a few things you need to look at before you purchase any stationary or art/craft product. It can be very harmful to your toddler if you ignore the basics. 

LOOK at the labels for the following:

  • Low odor

  • Safe for children

  • Non toxic

DO NOT buy products with the following on the labels:

  • Danger

  • Warning

  • Caution

  • May cause skin irritation

  • Harmfull if swallowed

  • Keep away from children

Products without any labels should be totally avoid as many suppliers mass-manufacture and do not do tests etc for safety.  There are also productswith labels stating non-toxic but it is only done so the product can be sold. Be careful to buy any type of brand you do not know. Always choose a reputable supplier, like Henkel, Staedler, Dala, Bostik, Crayon and many others. 

Even if products are non-toxic it should not be eaten. My little daughter can't keep her mouth away from the crayons; I think it is because of the smell. They do smell delicious. I constantly have to remind her not to eat it.  

She also started nibbling on felt pens, but fortunately I've found a supplier that manufacture felt pens that are totally safe - even for eating, but I won't tell her that. I still try and stop her from doing that.

There are always other ways of ensuring preschool safety - make your own. You can try your hand in making your own play clay out offlour, salt and water. If they then eat it then it will do less harm, maybe just give a tummy ache. 

You can also make edible clay - this is fun, but you need to remind your children that not all clay is edible. 

Preschool safety do not end with stationary. We all know the hazards in and around our homes. Make sure you have a fire distinguiser. This needs to be placed where everyone can see it. Teach your kids by pretending there is a fire. They need to know your escape plan.

It is also important to understand preschool safety on the Internet. Our kids are growing up with technology and knows so much more than we do. I've found this site that protects your child online and even enhance their relationship with God. It takes some time to set it up, but it is worth the time.

Also be sure to have a good read of Preschool Safety in the kitchen!
