About Safety Town
Safety Town is the first important step in our children’s education. Here is an organized solution to the problem of preparing our children to cope with and understand ever-increasing safety hazards. Each session includes two weeks of instruction and fun to 3-7 year old children determined by their age on May 18, 2019. Parents/guardians must grant permission for attendance and provide transportation for all participants.
Safety Town is an educational experience by which safety lessons are taught, with the children learning through actual participation and demonstration. Program activities include:
- Live presentations provided by visits from fire, rescue and police departments
- Safe school bus basics
- Use of 911
- Drug abuse prevention
- Personal health practices
- Pool safety
- Pedestrian and rider safety
- BrainMinders presentations
- Movies and songs that aid teacher instructions
During the early forming years, we want children to develop good safety habits and, most importantly, a general safe attitude which will guide them property in making safe decisions throughout their lives.
Safety Town is coordinated by a Director of Education who is a certified teacher. Other certified teachers, committed assistants and dedicated volunteers work with the children.
