Some Lloydminster play-schoolers had an entertaining afternoon courtesy Sveer Maintenance as the local contractor opened the shop to play host for the infants.
The kids got to sit behind the wheel of a dump truck and sound the horn as well as check out the cab of a skid-steer.
Little Emmett, who may have a future in broadcasting, if not behind a big wheel, was one of the excited kids on the workshop adventure.
“I had fun in the dump truck and I had fun here.”
The high energy afternoon is a monthly field trip organized by staff at Southridge Playschool.
Lola Palik who has been at the school for 29-years says this is one of a few trips to get the youngsters in tune with a range of fun learning experiences.
“The kids get to sit in the vehicles, they get to move the buttons and they get to honk horns. It’s lots of fun for them. Things that they usually don’t ever get to do.”
This is the sixth year that the play-school has visited the Sveer Maintenance shop with the guidance of Sveer staff and a couple of parents. Since September they have been to Bud Miller Park, the fire station, the Library, dental office and dance studio. Next month they will visit a seniors’ home.
Southridge Playschool will be hosting an open house for the fall intake of kids on Monday Mar. 6.
