Why do we teach about Community Helpers you might ask… Community helpers is a way to broaden children’s horizons and to help them learn about their world.  Children need to learn that there are people in their environment that can help and protect them in a time of need; such as a policeman, firefighter, doctors, nurses.  There are also helpers in our community who help us conduct daily business such as librarians, electricians, mechanics, hair dressers, librarians, teachers etc.

The community helpers theme also creates a spark of interest in the child’s imagination and creates an avenue to think about what they might like to do in each job and what might even be scary to them.
