eSafety recognises that educators work closely with the families of the children in their care. So they have designed the eSafety Early Years program to support that important relationship to improve online safety for young Australians.
Early learning services can also use the resources developed for families, to help with conversations about online safety.
Family Tech Agreement
Practical tool educators can share with families, to help them start a conversation about online safety with their children.
Online safety for under 5s booklet and poster
This booklet for families is free to all early learning services in Australia. Educators can use tips to support children and families in online safety.
A poster is also available, to help raise awareness of the eSafety Early Years program.
Ideas for making the best use of these resources include:
- Display the poster in the foyer of your service to grab the attention of families and have a booklet there for parents and carers to look through.
- Include the booklet’s key messages in your service’s newsletter or parent app.
- Download and print the sections separately for your families, so you can focus on one at a time as a community.
- Share thoughts and experiences about online safety at a parent gathering.
The booklet and poster are available as a hardcopy and provided free of charge to Australian residents (for non-profit purposes only).
