Registration for the Rochester Area Jaycees' “Safety Town” program, which teaches 4- to 7-year-olds various aspects of life safety, will be open April 15 through the Rochester Enrichment Office. Since 1978, this summer program has helped to reduce childhood injury by introducing 4- to 7-year-old children to basic safety concepts through the use of interactive experiences. Registrations will be accepted until all available slots are filled.
New this year, we will be offering a second-level class for children who have participated in Safety Town before, or are 6 or 7 years old.
“Safety Town” is set up to resemble a small-scale “town” with portable buildings, sidewalks, roads, and street signs. The appealing “Safety Town” learning environment is used as a practice area for several of the safety lessons. Each session lasts two weeks, running Monday through Thursday. There are both a.m. and p.m. classes with the morning class from 9:00 am to 11:30 am and the afternoon class from 12:30 pm to 3:00 pm. All lessons and activities relate to a specific topic each day such as Traffic and Pedestrian Safety, Fire Safety, Personal Safety, and Home Safety with special visits from the Sheriff, and Police. On the last day of class parents are invited to attend the “Safety Town” graduation ceremony, at which each child will receive a certificate and “Safety Town” t-shirt.
