Safety Town is a comprehensive safety program for the preschool to 1st grade age group including a safety curriculum and an interactive Safety Town experience.
The Safety Town curriculum is a collection of 10 short safety lessons accompanied by a Safety Town coloring book. Each lesson focuses on a different safety topic, including 911, bike safety and fire safety and encourages guest speakers like local firefighters, and police officers.
After completing the curriculum in the classroom, students will receive a certificate of completion, free T-shirt, and get to participate in Safety Town, a miniature city where the students can ride around on tricycles and practice what they have learned stopping at crosswalks and stop signs. This city can be set up in a large parking area and includes 11 buildings, an assortment of tricycles, stop signs, roads, and even crosswalks.
