More than half of child fire deaths are among children age 4 or younger – making them an important audience for fire prevention and education. If you’ve ever visited a preschool classroom to discuss fire safety, or have met with older toddlers during community outreach activities, you know they can be a tough crowd to reach.
That’s why the U.S. Fire Administration has collaborated once again with Sesame Workshop to update the Sesame Street® Fire Safety Program for preschool kids. The program shows educators how to empower children ages 3–5 with essential fire safety information and skills that can make a big difference in case of an emergency.
The program includes easy-to-use lessons, games and activities to help reinforce important fire safety messages and show children what to do if there’s a fire and ways to prevent fires from starting. And children’s lovable, furry Sesame Street friends will help engage children each step of the way! By sharing this information while children are young, you instill lifelong fire safety habits!
The Sesame Street Fire Safety Program curriculum for preschoolers is available in both English and Spanish. The curriculum includes an educator’s guide for teachers, a CD of songs and stories, a family guide, a coloring and activity booklet, and a poster.
Only U.S. fire departments, schools and day care providers can order printed copies of the full curriculum. Quantity limits apply.
If you are not a member of a fire department or don’t work for a school/day care organization, you can still access free printed Sesame Street materials.
