Catching on early - teaching and learning activities from prep to Year 6 is an evidence-based resource founded on research into sexuality education and child sexual development. Commissioned by the Department of Education and Early Childhood, Victorian Government. It was recently updated in 2013 to reflect the AusVELS curriculum.

I think it is fantastic. It is user friendly, professionally produced. It’s developmental and sequential. It’s all you need

an excellent resource...it is both sequential and comprehensive, with good activities and support for teachers.

 www.thehormonefactory.com is an interactive website created in 2009 which is pretty old in tech terms but it remains one of the few graphic forms of online sex education sites for 10-12 year olds.

Websites were getting popular back in 2009 as a format for delivering sex ed to teenagers, but there was nothing for 10 - 12 year olds. We successfully sought funding from a philanthropic organisation to produce the website. It has since been endorsed by Departments of Education across Australia, as well as recommended around the world. We won the Australian Teachers of Multimedia award for best educational multi-media resource for primary school and in its first five months had over three million hits worldwide.
