Sexual Abuse Prevention Program – Accessing the Program and Tips for Completing

Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECEs) are committed to the personal safety, health, and well-being of all children. The Sexual Abuse Prevention Program empowers RECEs with proactive approaches to help prevent child sexual abuse. While this subject matter can be challenging, the program includes supports for members, so you can expand your understanding of child sexual abuse, recognize behaviours of concern and learn prevention strategies.

Accessing the prevention program

The Sexual Abuse Prevention Program is available to members any time, at no cost, in English and French, via My College Account.

Watch the video below to guide you in accessing the prevention program.


Tips for completing the prevention program

While the Sexual Abuse Prevention Program is mandatory for all members of the College, there are options to help meet your learning and self-care needs. Consider these tips and supports:

  • The program can be completed in multiple sessions instead of all at once.
  • You can complete the program alone, with a trusted friend, or in a group with colleagues or a community of practice.
  • You can watch, listen and/or read the content in the Commit to Kids and Teatree Tells modules.
    • For those who prefer to read the content, transcripts are located below each module.
    • Commit to Kids modules 2 to 5 contain embedded video testimonials. Know that you do not need to view or read these sections to successfully complete the Knowledge Validation Test.
  • Caring for Self and Others: This resource provides members with information about how to prepare and care for themselves, and possibly other members, before and during engagement with the program content.
  • Trauma-informed care workshops: These are optional workshops designed to support members in understanding any reactions they may have when completing the Sexual Abuse Prevention Program and provide ways they may support themself or others. If you would like to attend a workshop, please email to register.
  • If you experience a technical issue on the Canadian Centre for Child Protection (C3P) platform, try using a different web browser (e.g., Chrome, Edge) or delete any site data (cache and cookies) related to the C3P platform website.
