Road safety is an important area of learning for all children and also a great way to promote social and emotional skills development and active play. It has become a tradition for us to have a special visit from the Crossing Supervisor (aka the Lollipop Lady ) to hear about her job and to think about being safe. It also helps to build the children’s community awareness and is part of the transition to school program that we run – as some children will be meeting Judy and her co- Lollipop Ladies on a daily basis next year. The preschool year is such an important time for the children’s learning and development especially around these sorts of social learning.
As you can see our educator Mrs bell also brought her bike in to give everyone a closer look at it and we discussed her safety vest and helmet. The children enjoyed the day and we are grateful to Judy for taking time out of her busy working day to visit and help us. Thanks, Judy!
