Key Road Safety Messages

These Kids and Traffic Key Road Safety Messages are designed for adults to use with young children as they travel together as passengers and pedestrians and at play. Early childhood educators are ideally placed to share these messages with children during everyday experiences -dramatic play, music and story, arrival and departures, transition times and discussions. They are also ideally placed to share these messages with families for them to use when out and about with their children.

Adults are responsible for the safety of the young children in their lives but by using these Kids and Traffic Key Road Safety Messages, they can engage children in learning about to be safe in the traffic environment without making them responsible for their own safety.
