I am the Owner of a local Barrhaven business called the Barrhaven and Area Safety Instructional Courses (BASICS).
I currently teach the Home Alone Course for children 10 & over and the Babysitting Course for youth 12 & over. These courses are produced by the Canada Safety Council.
I just started a new partnership with the SOS 4 Kids Organization to teach the “My Safe Life” Course to children 7-10 years of age.
This course focuses on the following topics:
- what to do in an emergency
- fire safety
- injury prevention & first aid
- travel & helmet safety
- online safety
- people safety and bullying and peers
This program was created to help children feel safe in all areas of their lives: home, school, online and during activities. The program uses games, digital media, videos, and role plays to help children develop skills that empower them to make confident choices and live a safer life.
All of my courses are taught at the Prince of Wales Manor at 22 Barnstone Drive in Barrhaven. These are full-day courses but I can also teach them over a 3-day period for approximately 2 hours per day. I can teach at your school, community centre or religious centre.
All courses are $70 for each participant.
You can get more information on my website at www.basicswithkaren.ca or on my facebook page at www.facebook.com/basicswithkaren
I look forward to teaching your children the BASICS in how to take care of themselves and others.
