Early Years Practitioners

Walk-Wise Kids provides Early Years Practitioners with an effective way to teach young children about road safety.  Each Walk-Wise Kids theme is based around a story which creates lots of opportunities to talk about road safety.  Additional resources are provided which are both interactive and child-friendly.  These include small-world play, role-play and creative activities.

The stories and activities have been created to appeal to young children.  The illustrations are simple, engaging, bright and promote language.  Through using these resources children will be able to learn about keeping safe on the roads.

The resources have been planned using the Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They are based upon the principles and characteristics of effective learning relating to:

  • Playing and exploring
  • Active Learning
  • Creating and thinking critically

The activities promote development across all areas and enable children to be effective and motivated learners.  The Early Years Providers Packs contain a number of themed plans linked to each book.
