Nursery recently took an exciting trip to the Tenleytown Fire Station.
The children did a wonderful job walking over to the station and staying safe crossing the street. We were greeted by firefighters Wendell, Justin and Eric. They explained fire safety, put on their protective gear to make sure the children would not be afraid if they saw a firefighter with a mask on and let us walk through the cab of a fire truck. They also extended the ladder of the fire truck up to the roof where one of their firefighters climbed up and then slid down the pole, much to the delight of the children! Back at school, we painted fire trucks and fire houses and put together snack bags of candy to send to the fire fighters to thank them.
It was a great trip!
