We Offer Important Safety Education for New and Expecting Parents


Each and every little life is so precious

Safe Start Australia offers a unique online education program for new and expectant parents. Our sessions cover the main causes of early childhood injury and how to best prevent them. We aim to empower every attendee with the confidence to make informed decisions for your child and to provide the best start in your parenting journey.

Passion and enthusiasm coupled with knowledge and evidence-based information make the Safe Start program informative and enjoyable. I attended the program before the birth of my third child as a refresher in child safety. I wish Safe Start was available when my first child was born, with the comprehensive session, online resources and social media community. If I had access to this wealth of information with my first, I would have saved myself a lot of time, money and anxiety. I highly recommend this program for all parents, grandparents, family or friends who regularly care for young children. Anyone who is wanting to provide the safest environment and care for the most precious little people in our lives, Safe Start is for you.

“A must-do course no matter what your experience is. Safe Start Australia offered pro-active advice with excellent supporting material and ongoing after course engagement. Many people do first aid or other medical courses; however, the Safe Start Program is practically centred around prevention. The program allowed us to immediately put actions in place and increased our awareness of the hazards and risks that are around us every day. Well Done and Thanks”

“An easy to follow and a great program for new parents. I LOVED the car seat demonstration, safe sleep info, and info pack I got in the post. The 3 hours really flew by”!

Nicolle did a fabulous job with presenting her engaging Safe Start Program. I was taught very clearly how easy injury prevention can be for children and the key hazards to look out for in the home and outside. Working as a nanny in many homes I now have the confidence to spot these hazards and remove the risk. This is a perfect program for anyone with or working with children. I have completed many professional development days and this one by far sent me away with so much practical knowledge. Thank you.
