Welcome to Mind the Road – which contains downloadable resources for childminders to use with the children and families they work with.
This website is about helping young children to develop road safety awareness. So they can develop basic skills to stay safe during their early years – which they can build on as they grow older and eventually become independent road users.
And it’s about helping adults to polish up their own road safety awareness – so they can communicate the right messages to children and young people. It also aims to help adults increase their understanding of how young children learn, so they can develop the most effective ways of teaching road safety awareness.
On this website you will find the following:
An experienced road safety officer talks about creating ideas and materials to use with younger children
Childminders share ideas about how they teach road safety concepts
Hints and tips
A range of information, quizzes and ideas to keep childminders on top of road safety issues
