Pre Ed (Early Years)
Pre Ed (Early Years) is a fire safety education program for children aged 3 to 5 years in Early Childcare Educator and Care Services. The program is mapped to the Early Years Learning Framework.
Children will learn about:

- how to create and practice a Home Fire Escape Plan, and
- about match/lighter safety.
All programs contain everything educators need to deliver the lessons, including Lesson Plans, Student Workbooks, and Educator/Teacher Resource Kits.
Progam resources can be found at the Bridgade Kids website.
