TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Netsmartz program says it's never too early to teach kids about the dangers on the Internet.

More than 200 students from Mark Twain Elementary School learned the do's and don'ts of surfing the web and how to protect themselves from child predators.

The program uses animated characters to better relate to the kids, and was possible thanks to support from Redeemer Covenant Church.

"Our philosophy is to allow community partners to come into the building to involve themselves and actively engage with our students with our families with our teachers," said Community School Coordinator, Michelle Hilton.

The program also stresses the importance of parents making sure they know what their children are doing online.
