ELFS BOX Available for Preschool and reception ELFS (Early Learning Fire Safety) is an exciting, new, fun filled box which helps provide the necessary tools to educate children with key skills in safety.

The resource includes a Teacher/educator pack, books, games and other exciting learning materials. GFRS has always championed ‘learning through fun’ and this resource is a wonderful extension of that ethos. ELFS has been developed specifically for educators who work with children aged between two and five years old, addressing the key areas within the early years’ foundation stages (EYFS).

This fun educational box is designed to be an ‘add on’ resource to be used following a visit from GFRS Schools Education Team, including Colin the Collie, already a familiar friend, and the fire engine. The box will be left with you after the visit for a week or two, depending on your requirements, and collected at the end of the period.
