The set of traffic signs is a cooperation project between the City of Tallinn and the Estonian Transport Administration, which is intended to assist kindergarten teachers in teaching with traffic safety. The play and learning set consisting of traffic signs supports the development of safe driving skills as a pedestrian and cyclist, which is also identified as one of the competencies in the national curriculum.
Children can be introduced to the most important traffic signs, create different traffic situations to play through and design a small temporary traffic camp in the kindergarten yard, where children can practice coping in traffic, including correct street behaviour, traffic light meanings, In addition, the various elements of the learning tool can be used to create opportunities for children to learn practical driving skills on a scooter or bicycle.
