Kohl's Safe Toddler University

The number-one cause of death and injury to children is unintentional injuries.  Most parents are unaware of all the dangers lurking around their home threatening the safety of their toddler. Did you know in 2011 an estimated 12,800 kids aged 19 and under were seen in emergency departments for injuries caused by televisions tipping over?  The primary cause of these deaths is lack of knowledge regarding preventing injury. Kohl’s Safe Toddler University, a class for parents/caregivers of children 1-3 years of age was designed to reduce unintentional injury risks through education.  Topics include:

  • Child Passenger Safety
  • Fire and Scald Burn Prevention
  • Surviving the "Terrible Twos"
  • House Hazards
