image This report examines the needs of the youngest internet users (aged nine and under) in terms of their online safety education.

This report also considers the needs of parents and teachers for appropriate resources that can help them to support the children in their care. Insafe Safer Internet Centres (SICs) have recently given an overview of the provision of information and resources for children aged nine and under and provision also for those with a care responsibility for the children. The SICs clearly show that this is an age group whose use of the internet is growing in importance and need. There are some excellent resources which have been developed centrally and used in many countries with this age group. There are also some very valuable partnerships contributing to internet safety and some outstanding national and international resources. Despite this, there still remain many challenges in meeting the needs of this very vulnerable age group.
