TODDLERS learned all about road safety at Chrishall Pre-School on Tuesday morning.

Essex County Council's Road Safety Officer for Uttlesford, Rose Johnson, paid the children a visit to talk about the importance of looking and listening when crossing the road and lollipop men and women.

The pre-school's deputy supervisor Denyse Fay said the 15 youngsters, aged between two-and-a-half and four-years-old, thoroughly enjoyed the talk.

"We have a theme of

People Who Help Us this term and the children learned about holding hands when crossing the road and what to do at traffic lights and zebra crossings.

"They all had fun taking part and were given safety stickers, pamphlets and information for their mums and dads about child car seats to take home.

"We will be continuing the theme in the coming weeks as we have a nurse and a policeman coming to talk to the children, as well as a visit to Royston Fire

Station planned."

The pre-school meets at Chrishall Primary School every weekday morning and Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.

There are currently vacancies for the afternoon sessions and more information is available from supervisor Dorelle Chaney on 07817 940813.
