Elmo Stays Safe teaches preschool aged children and families about safe road practices including child restraints, crossing the road, carpark safety, driveway safety and walking down the street.
The storybook was written to help educators involve children in learning and discussion about staying safe while on the go. Throughout the storybook the Crossing Supervisor Grover icons indicate learning activities that will reinforce a road safety message. While reading with children and completing the activities on the cards, you can guide children’s learning by helping them to reflect on the importance of certain road safety practices.
The learning opportunities link with the philosophy of the National Quality Framework - namely the Early Years Learning Framework and the National Practices for Early Childhood Road Safety Education.
The Elmo Stays Safe resource packs have been distributed to 2000 early childhood sites across South Australia. This program enables children an early, consistent, and unambiguous presentation of road safety messages, and influences their knowledge and attitude toward road safety now and into the future.
