Early years road safety education

A child can learn a lot about road safety through play.  It may be something as simple as identifying traffic or learning what a road is but these basic ideas are so important and necessary before a child can learn to cross the road safely.

The main messages to get across to pre-school children are:

  • Always go out with a grown up and always hold hands
  • Stop look and listen for traffic
  • Roads are for traffic, pavements are for people
