Smart Steps (birth to 4 year olds and their parents and carers)

What children learn in their early years has consequences right through the course of their lives.

Parents, carers and families can play an essential role in children's road safety education. 

Evidence shows that the most effective time to get involved in good road safety practices is early childhood, including the ante-natal period.

Smart Steps is a parent and carer education program regarding the use of:

  • child car restraints and general passenger safety
  • safe pedestrian practices
  • safe places to play.
     

Smart Steps aims to promote parent, carer, and community involvement in road safety education. By learning how to keep their young children safer in all kinds of road environments, parents and carers will be instrumental in developing good road safety behaviours among their children that will last a lifetime.
 
Professional Learning is offered to early childhood teachers, child health professionals and community agencies that provide a service to parents, carers and families who have children aged from birth to 4 years. It supports and encourages parents and carers to consistently model safe behaviours and make safer decisions for their children in the road environment.
