Lil’ Bebe Academy welcomed the visit of the Lombard Fire Department. The children enjoyed meeting each firefighter. They learned about the firetruck, hose, suit, the ‘turn out pants’, helmet and all the gears that aids the firefighters to perform their job.
During the month it was fun learning about hot and cold elements and the danger associated with especially hot things. We explored fire safety in the kitchen , home and around them. We talked about and practiced hot water safety and the associated colors: red – hot, blue-cold. Our children enjoyed the activities and thanks to sparky the dog we engaged in online learning and got to make emergency evacuation plans. Children got a diagram to take home and was able to make the emergency evacuation plan with their families.
At Lil’ Bebe Academy we practice fire and tornado drills bi-monthly. It is always a good thing to practice with these skills with children. Ask them the number to call when in trouble and they will all blurt 911. Keep practicing children!
