HALB Lev Chana Early Childhood Center recently conducted bus safety sessions for the four-year-old nursery and kindergarten children. In cooperation with Independent Bus Company, and with the assistance of Michael Sperber, a big yellow school bus, driven by bus driver Brenda, arrived and parked in front of the preschool. Each class boarded the bus with their teachers and went over bus safety rules, such as why we sit belted in the front half of the bus, why we speak to friends using indoor voices, why we don’t eat or drink on the bus, and why we don’t stand, walk, jump, or do somersaults.
The children provided reasons for the safety rules. When asked who was in charge of the bus, everyone responded, “The driver!” All the children practiced buckling and unbuckling their seatbelts. They laughed when Morah asked them to try it with their eyes closed, and were astonished that they were able to do it. Lev Chana children know that saying “hello” when getting on and “thank you” when getting off is a kiddush Hashem and very much appreciated by the drivers. Thank you to bus driver Brenda and Michael Sperber for helping educate children in bus safety.
