CHILDREN from The Park Pre-School at Iscoyd have been learning about helpful people from all walks of life.
As part of their latest topic, the children, aged between two and five, have recently enjoyed a visit to Malpas Fire Station to meet the firefighters and learn about their roles, and also welcomed lollipop ladies to the school.
The children have also got the low-down on hairdressers and doctors and nurses after transforming part of their school into a salon and hospital.
The exercises are part of their foundation stage learning included in the National Curriculum.
Nursery owner Louise Holt said: 'The visits are designed to give the children a wider experience about the world around them beyond the boundaries of their homes and families.
'It opens their eyes and they are fascinated to learn about the various kinds of people who are here to help us in different ways.'
The pre-school has 24 children who attend its weekday sessions between 9.15am and 1pm. To find out more, ring tutor Miss Melanie Hughes on 01948 780602.
