La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Local daycare providers gathered Tuesday at the La Crosse Public Library to address bullying in younger children.
The group focused on bullying in kids between the ages of 2 through 6. Health experts say bullying develops in a well defined progression and with proper social development bullying can be avoided starting at a young age.
"We need to make sure our children are safe in their schools, that they're building their social emotional skills and unfortunately bullying is reaching into the daycare's and pre-schools so it needs to be addressed just not at the elementary education level but even younger," says Sherri Sinniger, a Youth Services Librarian for the La Crosse Public Library.
Childcare providers say they are continually trying to learn new ways to address bullying and meet once a month from September through May.
