Safety Town is a ten-day class in safety education open to all children who will be attending kindergarten. Under guidance, they practice and experience “real life” situations before being confronted with the situation in their life.
Instruction includes pedestrian, motorist, bus, fire railroad crossing, bicycle, toy, playground, drug, and general home safety, as well as a field trip to the police station.
Safety Town is actually a miniature town built to the scale of a small child and has buildings, streets, sidewalks, crosswalks, vehicles, traffic signs, and a traffic light. It is in the small town where the children practice what they learn in our classrooms.
