The Mansfield Volunteer Fire Department rolled into the parking lot of the Hand-in-Hand Daycare in Witcherville on Monday morning, and the children were all smiles.
Afterwards, those children were allowed a time in the drivers seat of the fire truck, were shown the various equipment on board and even got to climb the latter and hold the hose!
Bost’s Hand-in-Hand Child Development Center’s philosophy is that “the best way for children to learn is together- whether a child’s needs are typical or exceptional. This comprehensive program provides integrated activities that allow children, with and without developmental delay, to learn and play side by side in a structured learning environment.”
One of the boys in the group, Trevor, aspires to be a fireman. Throughout the demonstration he was enthralled by the equipment and truck. His teacher admitted that at play time, the fire trucks are what he wants to play with.
A special thanks to the Mansfield Fire Department for taking time to come
