Children get a special visit from Police

Date: 04 Feb 2016



It was so exciting when the flashing lights and siren went off at kidsunlimited Sale Day Nursery on Marsland Road.

 

The preschool children have been learning about their local community, and to bring the learning to life a local police officer visited the nursery to talk to the children about the vital role the police play in helping and supporting our community.

 

They listened intently as the Police Constable explained how the police support and help the local community, and then gave them tips on how to stay safe.   Some of the children were a little shy when the officer first arrived, but after they were given the opportunity to try on his uniform and learn about what his job involved, they were really excited and didn’t want him to leave.

 

“As part of our commitment to keeping everybody safe we have been focusing on people who help us and the roles that they perform, “ explains the Nursery Manager Jenni McDougall. “The children had a fantastic time and were also able to sit in the big police car and try on police hats.”
