Just two lockers. The water hose looks like a third.

I don't understand why she's not tied directly into the harness. Perhaps it may be because she's tied in to the middle of the rope (it appears that way). Still, there are several ways to tie into the center of a rope safely. And even lockers are okay, but they should be run through the harness properly, and not clipped into a belay loop. I know she's little and the forces are very low, and I'm not saying that what we see here is patently dangerous (it's not), but it is poor modeling. Yes, let's get kids out there early! But let's do it as wisely and safely as possible. I hope this is received as it is intended, as positive and motivating, and not merely critical.
