Sirens, police hats and cars as Sporle child centre entertained

Children at Sporle’s Elephant and Castle Child Care Centre had a visit from the police last month with plenty of hands-on fun.

Members of Norfolk Constabulary visited the children as part of a ‘people in the communities’ themed week at the centre.

Among the activities on offer for the children was the opportunity to sit in a police car.

The siren and flashing lights were also on show for the children to marvel at.

Creativity was encouraged as the children made their own police hats and other crafts.

Ellie Colman, senior lead practitioner at the centre, said: “We have had one day where people in different careers come in to see the children.

“We had a visit from Norfolk Constabulary and the children were very excited to see and learn from ‘real’ policemen.

“The children explored the various types of hats and had lots of fun wearing them, along with other police equipment.

“It was a fabulous experience. The kids absolutely loved it.”

As well as puppets and other craft-related activities, the children discussed their career aspirations, what their parents do and what they want to do when they grow up.

The care centre seeks to “provide a secure, safe and happy environment that promotes children’s learning and development through child initiated and adult led activities.”

Located on Dunham Road, the centre provides full day care and education for those up to five-years-old.
