Ditto's Adventure Program - Providing Preventative Strategies for Young Children
GV CASA and Bravehearts Inc in partnership present the Ditto Adventure Program in day care centres, pre-schools and primary schools up to grade 3. The aim of the program is to teach children about Good Touches and Bad Touches. Yes feelings and No feelings. Good secrets and Bad Secrets. What to do if they have a no feeling. The Ditto costume is a larger than life lion cub, similar to the characters seen at Movie World.
The messages are presented in a fun filled stage format which includes lively songs. An important part of the program is to give the children the messages of the show while at the same time keeping the children's innocence.
The principles taught in the show are also transferrable to other situations that children might encounter for example, bullying.
