Ahead of its first 2018 ‘Beep Beep! Day’ on 7 March, Brake is calling on educators of young children to help spread key road safety messages among the children they are involved with.
Now in its 15th year, the ‘Beep Beep! Day’ initiative encourages nurseries, playgroups, infant schools, children’s centres and childminders to host road safety related activities – including creating posters, experimenting with toy cars and singing road safety songs.
The road safety charity hopes the event, which will run three times during 2018*, will also raise awareness among parents and the wider community about the importance of protecting children on roads.
To help educators get involved in the initiative, Brake has produced new free and low-cost resources.
The ‘Bumper Pack’ contains stickers and certificates for all children who take part as well as posters to promote the event.
The pack also contains a hand print poster to help children learn about holding hands, laminated activity and song cards, a large road map and an activity poster with cut-out shapes.
Brake also points educators towards its online guides to teaching road safety, which are available to use all year round.
*Beep Beep! Days will also take place on 27 June and 21 November 2018.
