Following the review of Smart Steps last year, we have been working hard to increase our reach across the state. This has resulted in:
- over 34,000 resource orders
- nine resource reprints
- a 47% increase in the number of educators trained.
To extend our reach to more parents and children we continued to work with four service providers including Meerilinga Young Children’s Foundation, Ngala, Kidsafe WA and Playgroup WA. We thank these organisations for their continued support and commitment to children’s safety.
To demonstrate the educational robustness of the program a new resource that explicitly links the professional learning workshop to the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership Standards was developed.
Izzy the road safety mascot
Izzy attended schools, early learning centres, parent workshops and special events across the state delivering valuable road safety messages to over 11,000 children and parents.
This year we developed a new prototype of Izzy to improve ease of use.
