Children and staff at Bright Horizons Teddies Tunbridge Wells Day Nursery and Preschool have celebrated National Child Safety Week by taking part in a variety of activities, as well as understanding the purpose of the week.
One part of the week was focused on sun safety, with the children learning about how to be proactive in protecting themselves against the dangers of sunlight. This included applying sunscreen to dolls.
Local paramedics also visited the nursery during the week, with children getting the opportunity to look inside an ambulance and use the equipment. The children had lots of fun looking inside the ambulance and learning about the different equipment used. The children also learned about other people that keep us safe, including firefighters.
Bright Horizons health and safety mascot Candy Floss was present throughout too to help the children learn the importance of road safety.
A road was created in the nursery garden and children discussed the use of traffic lights and how to cross the road safely.
“We always take the opportunity to take part in National Child Safety Week, with safety being our number one priority and an integral part of all of our education programmes,” said Nursery Manager Jo-Curtis Lawrence. “This year we had a fantastic week packed with a variety of fun, exciting and informative activities, all of which emphasised the importance of safety in a range of real life scenarios, including crossing the road.”
