Run a Beep Beep! Day to engage early years in road safety basics.

Beep Beep! Days, sponsored by Churchill, are a great opportunity for early year’s educators to introduce children to road safety basics, with fun activities and resources provided by Brake, the road safety charity. Every year thousands of tots and infants aged 2-7 take part to help save little lives.

Every day, 500 children and young people are killed on roads around the world. Brake works to stop road deaths and injuries by campaigning for safer roads, and supports people bereaved or injured in road crashes.

To help UK early years get involved with the initiative, Brake produces a range of special resources to help little ones understand road safety basics, from the importance of holding a grown up’s hand to recognising when it’s safe to cross.

Everyone who registers to take part receives a free e- resource pack or can purchase a bumper pack for just £12.60, per 50 children. The pack includes lots of fun and reusable road safety activities including colouring sheets, posters, laminated activities, certificates, stickers and balloons!

In 2018, over 2,500 nurseries, schools and childminders registered to take part, helping spread important messages to more than 350,000 children. The event also provides an ideal opportunity to fundraise for Brake by dressing in stripy clothes in exchange for donations. Funds raised help the charity in its work to support bereaved and seriously injured road crash victims, and campaign for safer roads.
