Planning field trips for young children can be a great way to extend learning and create an opportunity for fun and excitement for your students. Field trips can also present challenges and cause some worry and anxiety for staff, children, and families. Careful planning and an understanding of appropriate safety and supervision practices can help to ease any anxiety and ensure that your field trip runs smoothly.
Planning will include a full understanding of ratios and supervision during transportation as well as consideration of special needs children. This includes any accommodations needed when participating in the field trip and during transportation.
