Kelly Ross is the newest member of the child education franchise, Kidproof Canada®. This franchise realizes the challenge faced by parents, when it comes to protecting their children online. She knows that Kidproof Canada’s® programs offer the most recent child safety information available, which assisted her in making her decision to start her own Kidproof franchise.

Kelly Ross says, “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 concentrate on delivering the child safety programs in the Ottawa-Carleton region of Ontario. The Kidproof Canada® franchises are run by partners who are committed to providing and growing child safety awareness throughout their community. The Kidproof Canada® franchise has many locations to provide trusted child safety programs for children aged between five and fifteen, along with parents and educators.

Kidproof offers an abundance of child safety information, presented in a non-treating way, so that the parents and educators have peace of mind and believe in the reliability of the business. The business offers a variety of child safety courses, which are appropriate in today’s changing world. These include; BullyProofing, Never Bee Lost, Babysitter Training and Home Alone.

Alongside the child safety classes from the Kidproof franchise, Kelly also runs a local grocery store with her husband Ken and for five years she has been offering educational workshops in ‘The Kids’ Zone’ room within her store. Kelly, alongside her husband and two children are very much involved in the community, helping and getting involved with fundraising for charities, sport teams, schools, churches and service groups.

Kelly is really keen to take on her own Kidproof franchise. She explains “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?”

About Kidproof Canada®

The Kidproof Canada® business was founded by a former police officer called Samantha Wilson. As an internationally-recognized child and family safety expert, Samantha saw a gap in the market and noticed the need for child safety information to be more available and accessible to various audiences including, parents, children and community leaders. This created the Kidproof business, which was formed in 2000 and even since has become the go-to resource for issues relating to child safety.

 Samantha has many impressive achievements to her name including being a winner of the Top 40 Under 40 Award, and the 2008 Social Entrepreneur Finalist in the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of The Year Awards. Samantha is also the author of Safe Kids, Safe Families, and had been included in a number of newspapers and magazines and also been on television and radio programmes.
