SeeMore visits Busby West public school to teach preschoolers how to stay safe online.

On Monday, October 9 the KIDS Foundation with SeeMore Safety visited the children at Busby West public-school preschool to help them stay safe while online. 

The incursion was part of the launch for  ‘Netys the trusted friend’ program, an eSafety resource for children aged 4-6 years. This program was developed to help the children navigate and use online devices safely and is funded under round 3 of the eSafety Commissioner’s Online Safety Grants Program.

CEO and KIDS Foundation Founder, Dr. Susie O’Neill said, “Since COVID19 more and more children have been using technology for a variety of reasons. Communicating with family and friends, playing games and watching shows online have become common place since 2020. This increase of screentime usage also brought a greater awareness of the need to stay safe while online.”

“Netys the trusted friend” in the book SeeMore eSafety, highlights some simple things children can do to stay safe while online. 1000 preschools across Australia were selected to receive the program which included a class set of eSafety books for the children to take home to highlight some eSafety messages for families. These books also contained animated messages from SeeMore to reiterate the ways to stay safe while online
