Students at Early Learning Center will be able to explore and learn about different vehicles and jobs in the community at the 9th annual Big Truck Day on Friday, May 15, from 9:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Big Truck Day is an event for District 186 early childhood students in programs that include Early Start, Early Childhood Special Ed., and the Parents as Teachers program.
“Big Truck Day has been a long tradition at the ELC where children and families together share in this experience. It is wonderful,” said ELC principal Jill Grove.
Many local organizations and businesses collaborate with District 186 to provide students and families the opportunity to view and interact with a variety of community service vehicles and their operators. These organizations include CWLP, Ameren, Illinois State Police, Illinois National Guard, Harmony Limo, Central Illinois Community Food Bank, Springfield Fire and Police Departments, Hillier Storage, Lake Area Waste Disposal, Tuxhorn, Springfield Mass Transit and Schwan’s.
