NFPA created the Learn Not to Burn® Preschool Program in 1991 to address the high risks children under the age of five face in regards to fatal home fires.
The updated program integrates literacy, movement, music, and dramatic play to provide a developmentally appropriate learning experience for preschool-aged children.
Five lessons tap into varied learning styles to reinforce the safety concepts for young children. The behaviors and strategies addressed in the revised program are guided by research related to fire and life safety messaging and young children including the use of positively-framed messages, opportunities for active engagement and encouragement of family involvement.
The Learn Not to Burn Preschool Program lessons are intended for 3-5 year old children.
