Learn Not to Burn Preschool Program

Because children under the age of five are almost one and a half times as likely to die in a home fire as the average person, NFPA created the Learn Not to Burn® Preschool Program in 1991.

We are currently revising the lesson plans to be taught by preschool teachers and the home link activities that go home to parents and caregivers. The Learn Not to Burn Preschool songs and recordings by Jim Post have also been updated. Singer and musician Dante Ware joins Jim in singing and performing many of the songs. The recordings are free to download along with the lesson plans.

The Learn Not to Burn Preschool Program lessons are most appropriate for 4- and 5-year-old children, but they are also appropriate for children in kindergarten.

Available lessons

These lessons and songs may be downloaded and copied for non-commercial educational purposes.
