I highly doubt theyd actually talk about pedophilia though... Classroom teachers have been teaching this sort of stuff for years to their young students, 'yes and no' , 'personal space', 'the right to feel safe etc'

I would allow my kids to go, but there should be more information for parents.
My kids are under 3 so I don't have much experience with this stuff, but if as some of you say, there r parents who don't discuss (or don't know how to approach the subject with their prep age kid), then there needs to be an information night educating parents on what should be taught at home and at school. Cultural/ethnic/religious reasons stop some people from even considering these topics as valid conversations with their kids and for this reason there should be more info provided to the parents.

I would let my kids attend *shugs* it sounds to be more than just a sex ed class, but looking at getting them to understand grooming and inappropriate behaviour in a child friendly way. I took the secrets thing to be about how abusers encourage secrets to maintain the abuse and why secrets aren't good?
Sadly some kids aren't taught by parents. I went to school with a girl with very christian parents that didn't know what sex even was or periods by the end of primary school.

I think I'd let my children go. I would want to see blue cards and the like from the people doing the show and ask few more questions etc but I think this is something that's very important for children to learn. I've always taught my dd the right names for things and how babies a born I've never felt the need the sugar coat things. If she's told the truth from the start it will seem natural to her regarding child birth and gential names.

I truly don't understand why anyone wouldn't allow their child to go. If it is the one I'm thinking of, it is suitable for young kids and is NOT a sex ed class, it doesn't explain any of 'that stuff' that a parent may feel they want to have 'that' chat about.
The one my DS did basically explains about how you are in charge of your own body and that your feelings are important and if something/someone makes you feel yucky/nervous/scared/sad it is important to tell someone you trust. It explains about the 4 private parts that you are the boss of and explains good and bad secrets, and other things that I've since forgotten.
Then the child comes home with an activity book that has all these ideas in it. So you will find out what they learnt about in the end anyway and you can go through it with them.

We've run similar in the 3 to 6 year age groups, but parents were able to attend if the so wished. They were taught to trust their insticts, that there are people to turn to, that their body is their own, how to tell when they feel uncomfortable around people they know or have met, how to stay safe in crowds, around water, also common things a stranger might try to gain trust. It had a lot of areas and was dealt with in an age-appropriate way. I'm another who cannot understand why anyone would say no.
