Road safety education program

Extend your students' understanding of road safety with an excursion to Kew Traffic School.

We run a road safety education program for school, kindergarten and childcare groups. Each session is designed for children aged 3 to 10 years old, and is capped at 30 children.

There are 3 sessions on Monday to Thursday during school term at these times:

  • 9:30 am to 11 am
  • 11:15 am to 12:45 pm
  • 1:15 pm to 2:45 pm.

The road safety education program operates during school terms.

Learning aims and outcomes

The aim is for children to learn road safety in a broad range of everyday scenarios by engaging in imaginative play.

Our team engages in intentional teaching practices to extend children’s learning about road safety and build their confidence to become more independent road users.

Students will learn how to be safe on the road as:

  • pedestrians
  • cyclists
  • passengers in a vehicle.

The program is run by a trained teacher and is developed in line with the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and the Victorian Curriculum F-10.

What happens in a session

Each road safety education session runs for 90 minutes and includes:

  • A 20-minute, age-appropriate interactive presentation about road safety. 
  • A 10-minute guided walk around Kew Traffic School to give the children an opportunity to practice their new knowledge.
  • 60 minutes of exclusive use of the Kew Traffic School track and facilities to practice road safety. During this hour, children can make their way around the track as cyclists (with bikes provided by Kew Traffic School to suit all sizes and stages of development) or pedestrians. They can also engage in imaginative play across the facility, for example by role-playing as an emergency services person.

After the program, we provide each child with a certificate of attendance and further resources to share with parents and carers.
