Judy the school crossing supervisor from Inverloch, and Julie the school crossing supervisor from Wonthaggi came to visit our kinder room to teach the children about road safety. Safety of the children is paramount to us at Inverloch Childcare and we believe its important that the children apply what they learn in the centre out in the community as well.
The children learned to 'stop, look, listen, think' before crossing a road, to always make sure their bag is zipped up properly so that nothing falls out and to make sure their shoes are done up properly so that they don't trip over.
Judy set up a pretend crossing on the floor with cars on the road and the children practised safe times to cross. Julie used different picture cards and gave the children different scenarios and asked them which is safe and which isn't for example a child riding a bike without a helmet.
To finish off the session, the children had a turn of role playing pedestrians, crossing supervisors and cars at the intersection, so they could practice what they had learnt today.
