Summer Level 1 (ages 5-8)

The KBEP believes that preventing relationship violence starts at an early age. During the elementary school years, students are in the school-aged stage and moving towards early adolescence. We at the KBEP feel that it is at these developmental stages that youth should be familiarized with the relationships they have with themselves and others. Establishing and emphasizing concepts of positive self-esteem, responsibility, and kindness provide the foundation to creating healthy and safe relationships.


Summer Level 1 Objectives

By the end of the program students will be able to:

  • Identify relationships and understand the definition of relationship violence
  • Establish, maintain and respect personal boundaries (both emotional and physical)
  • Recognize what is needed to calm down when feeling negative emotions such as embarrassment or anger
  • Reflect on sense of self and the importance of being proud
  • Understand kindness, respect and responsibility
