About the Program
Safety Town is an early childhood safety education program designed to introduce all types of safety conditions to four, five, and six-year-old children. During a ten-day course, children learn safety behavior through their own involvement. They do this by role-playing in simulated and actual life situations (under the guidance of a teacher and a police officer). Safety-songs, poems, art projects, stories, movies, and a bus trip, combined with actual practice, make this program a fun, learning experience that children eagerly look forward to attending!
Sponsored by: National Safety Town Center in cooperation with the Brookings Police Department.
