Road Safety information for parents
Parents can play an important role in building their children’s resilience, and supporting the key road safety education messages that are delivered through our early childhood and school programs. To help you, we have resources suitable for children and young people of all ages including Smart Steps, Challenges and Choices, and Keys4Life.
We also offer education seminars at various times throughout the year and in different locations throughout Western Australia. You will also find fact sheets and links where appropriate right here on our website.
We all interact with traffic each day. Young children need to be shown how to do this safely and with the help of an adult. Smart Steps is SDERA's early childhood road safety education program that gives parents tips on how to keep their child safe in the traffic environment including choosing and installing child car restraints, setting up playing areas away from driveways, and crossing roads. Some early childhood services and Kindergartens offer parents a Smart Steps education session.
