How cool is traffic school? Pretty darn cool! This is a great way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday morning. The traffic school has a neat little set up happening with pedestrian crossings, busy intersections with operating traffic lights, round-a-bout's, train crossings and even a petrol station. There is also, a BBQ, picnic table plus an awesome sand pit and some play equipment too. You can bring your own bike or they do have bikes here for you to borrow (for free). Trikes, balance bikes, bikes with or without training wheels.
NOTE: The Essendon Traffic School opens for weekday school holiday sessions
Mamma's hot tips:
Get there 15 minutes early. You can't book so it works on a first 30 kids in basis.
Bring snacks etc (there is no canteen or food available on site)
you can hire the place for a party. More info here
They don't do 'cash' so bring an eftpos card
They do have instant coffee and tea in the shed for $1.00 but if you are hangin' for a good coffee stop and pick one up on the way!.
