Highlights

Early childhood road safety education is about educators working with children and their families to develop skills, behaviours and attitudes that assist children to be safe and active participants in communities and speaks to the safety of children on our roads as passengers, pedestrians and users of bicycles and other wheeled toys. Road safety education requires intentional (thoughtful, purposeful and deliberate) planning that articulates the way educators support children to acquire these skills. Through intentional teaching decisions, educators can ensure that their program includes the resources and practices to support children’s learning and development.

To be effective, road safety education must be evidence based and match the child’s stage of development and level of independence as a road user. This session will speak directly to the NQS and threads the NQS throughout – specific ally QA2, QA6 and QA7.
