Day care talks about safety

With another new school year beginning, Fort Frances Day Care had safety as an annual theme in September. And this year, we had the opportunity to have two visitors come in to talk to us about safety.
On Sept. 6, Cst. Al MacDonald joined us. We started in the pre-school room, where he had safety cards which he asked the children questions about (i.e., what to do if no one shows up to pick you up after school).
After the discussion, we ventured outside, where the children got to go in the police car, then practice how to cross the street safely.
On Sept. 27, “Sparky the Dog” came to talk about fire safety. We are to have routes planned so we can get out of our houses safely.
You should check your fire detectors monthly and vacuum them.
At the day care, we have monthly fire drills so we are ready if a real fire should occur.
The pre-school teachers, Jennifer Kawulia, Diane Krawchuk, and Marilyn Ogden, and the children would like to thank our special visitors for coming to share their expertise on safety with us.
In related news, the day care centre now has openings for children aged 15 months to nine years. If you are interested or would like to visit the day care, contact Phyllis Kellar at 274-5457.
