The Institute for Childhood Preparedness has partnered with Signs That Save to help educate parents, early childhood professionals, caregivers, and the general public about protecting children and preventing unnecessary tragedies from occurring. Participants will learn about the importance of visual cues and the science behind how they influence behavior and work to prevent childhood injury and death. We will also explore the importance of visual cues and how young children use them to perceive, learn, and form routines.

Signs That Save is devoted to protecting children through education and the use of strong visual cues, focusing on protecting a child's physical and emotional safety. Their goal is to educate the public about prevention and child safety through collaborations with like-minded child safety organizations. Their journey began by educating the public about the dangers of hot cars and has grown to include home safety, poison safety, securing the pool, drowning prevention, hand washing, emotional support for children, and more.
