Bullying prevention can start in the early childhood years through the helpful guidance of parents and educators. 

You don’t need to use the word ‘bullying’ to begin to teach young children a wide range of skills that will prevent bullying. 

Emotional literacy is the ability to understand, express and manage individual emotions as well as the ability to understand and respond to the emotions of others. These skills are a central part of a child’s social development and provide a foundation for positive personal friendships.

Learn with Allen - The Allen Adventure

The Allen Adventure is a comprehensive suite of resources designed to foster emotional literacy, prosocial behaviours, and respectful relationships between children.

The Bullying. No Way! early childhood to Year 2 resources are an extension of The Allen Adventure app. Allen is an alien visiting Earth where he learns that getting along with other isn't always easy.
