The Children’s Traffic Club:

Early Years

The successful delivery of any education intervention can be greatly increased if there is a shared responsibility within the early years’ settings with parents/carers. With many parents working, nurseries, playgroups, preschool professionals and childminders have a vital part in participating in young children’s lives. Working with the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY), we have ensured that all the activities are clearly signposted so you can quickly and easily identify the most suitable resource for delivering each of the areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). This will support you to observe, assess and plan activities based on children’s interests and support progress across all areas.

Road Safety/Active Plan

Road Safety Officers, School Travel Advisors and Health Professionals all play an invaluable role in supporting the Club by encouraging awareness and uptake of the programme in their local area. Your support is critical in promoting the programme by engaging and communicating with nurseries, playgroups, childminders and professionals who work with this audience. There are many ways you can help raise awareness and encourage uptake with parent/child groups that you work and/or partner with by:

  • Visit nurseries and playgroups and encourage using the materials
  • Investigate potential partners such as Child Information Centres and/or parent carer groups
  • Opportunity to develop editorial/advertorial in local publications to promote the Club in your area:
    • Newsletter
    • Magazines
    • Websites
  • Advocate the Club via libraries, doctor’s surgeries, faith groups.

In areas where the Club has been funded from Central or Local government, we have been able to work in partnership to reach even the most vulnerable in the target audience. We have developed a bespoke system of data capture that easily identifies/prioritises those postcodes which would most benefit from a more targeted approach.
