Home injuries are major threats to children in South Korea, especially for infants and preschoolers. With increment of working mothers, injuries in child care centers were also major problems. In this study, the education program was developed for mothers of infants and teachers in childcare centers regarding the child safety, and the effects of this program were analyzed. This education program was developed in cooperation with two public health centers for efficient and continuous applications in the community. Using one group pretest-post test design, safety knowledge and practice were assessed from 115 mothers of infants and 74 teachers in childcare centers. Theoretical framework for this program was Pender's health promotion model. After group education sessions on safety management in public health centers, safety knowledge and practice were significantly increased in mothers. Also, safety knowledge was significantly increased in childcare teachers, but safety practice did not changed. Safety practice was significantly related to the confidence in safety practice, health belief on safety, social support, and stress. The developed education program regarding the child safety was effective in promoting both safety knowledge and practice for mothers, and only safety knowledge for teachers in child care centers. Recommendations are offered for practice, research, and health policy.
