For Immediate Release: Canada (Press Release) – Kelly Ross, Kidproof Canada's® newest partner, understands the challenges parents face when it comes to their child's online safety. She knows that Kidproof Canada's® programs offer the most up-to-date child safety information available, which helped her make the decision to start her Kidproof franchise.

“As parents, we teach our children as best we can, but sometimes it's a good idea to have them learn from someone outside the home,” says Kelly. “With more advanced technology, Internet, cell phones and social networking such as Facebook and Twitter it is crucial that we not only educate our children, but ourselves as well.”

Kelly will be delivering Kidproof's child safety education programs in the Ottawa-Carleton Region of Ontario. Kidproof Canada® child safety education franchises are run by partners who are committed to increasing child safety awareness throughout their communities. Kidproof Canada® franchise locations provide trusted child safety programs for children between the ages of five and fifteen, parents and educators.

Parents and educators can be confident that Kidproof always offers comprehensive child safety information, delivered in a non-threatening way. Kidproof Canada® offers numerous child safety courses that are relevant in today's changing world, including BullyProofing, Never Bee Lost, Babysitter Training, and Home Alone.

Besides offering child safety classes through her Kidproof franchise, Kelly runs a local grocery store with her husband Ken. For five years she has been offering educational workshops in 'The Kids' Zone' room of the store. Kelly, her husband, and her two children are also very involved within their community, fundraising for several charities, sports teams, schools, churches and service groups.

Kelly can't wait to take on her role as a Kidproof franchisee. “I am ready to spread my wings and expand into the rest of the city with Kidproof Canada®. With the young families that are moving into the community and parents looking for programs that will help educate their children, what better chance could I possibly have to move in and make my mark with Kidproof?”
