News from Azalea Blossom: New Curriculum for SAFE through the Arts

Margaret has been hard at work this summer at revising the SAFE through the Arts curriculum for the Pre-K and Kindergarten population. The newly revamped curriculum includes seven original songs and eight puppet scripts all geared towards educating young children to empower themselves and get along with others. SAFE through the Arts is an violence prevention educational program utilizing the creative and performing Arts. It is based upon the three key components of Self- Affirmation, Financial literacy and Education of non-violence. For further information, please visit www.AzaleaBlossom.com
