SAFETY TOWN is offered to any child entering 5 year old Kindergarten in fall of 2017. When your child enters Kindergarten this fall, he or she will encounter many new experiences. We cannot trust our child’s life to a few memorized “do’s and don’ts” taught in the home….our world has become too complex for that type of learning alone.
SAFETY TOWN the important first step in our children’s safety education. Safety Town is an organized aide for preparing our children to cope with and understand ever-increasing safety hazards.
Children must be safety minded, and that is why SAFETY TOWN is being sponsored by the Burlington Jaycees. We believe in the children of Burlington.
SAFETY TOWN is an early childhood safety education program designed to introduce all types of safety conditions to preschool children. During a 15 hour course (1.5 hours a day for 2 weeks), children will learn safety behavior through their own involvement. They do this under the guidance/instruction of a licensed teacher, police officers, and student volunteer instructors. A miniature layout of town is built to the scale of the pre-school child. Safety lessons are taught with the child learning through actual demonstrations and participation.
Movies, songs posters, bus trips, and field trips to the Burlington Police and Burlington Fire Departments are several of the things that your child will be experiencing. This program is a fun learning experience that children eagerly look forward to attending.
Please see the registration form for additional information and times. *REGISTRATION DEADLINE: May 1st
