What happens during a Life Education visit?
You may have heard that Life Ed or Healthy Harold is visiting your child’s preschool or primary school.
So, what can you expect?
Consisting of 16 different modules, our program has been specially designed for preschools, primary schools and secondary schools.
Our program is delivered by a team of specially trained educators using highly interactive exercises and techniques. In recent times, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our program is also available online.
Definitely not a one-off intervention. Our program is designed to engage students from an early age and to be sequential; delivered year-on-year, building on learnings throughout preschool and primary school into secondary school.
Our program covers topics including; drugs and alcohol, personal safety, cybersafety, food and nutrition, physical activity, social and emotional wellbeing and the human body. By working together with school communities, we are able to identify areas of greatest need and choose program content tailored to each school and stage group.
Depending on the length of the module booked, we suggest 2-4 sessions per day.
The preschool and Kindergarten - Year 2 modules run for 60 minutes. The Year 3-6 modules run for 90 minutes.
Mobile Learning Centres are used in most primary schools. Our pop-up classrooms are available for use in primary schools in selected locations. Preschool visits are facilitated in your learning environment.
The state offices can provide you with the scheduled educator’s WWCC number. The educator will also provide 100 point identity check when they arrive at the school.
Healthy Harold has been visiting preschools and primary school with us for more than 40 years and there are no signs of him slowing down. He doesn't, however, accompany us into secondary schools though.
