Safety Town


Safety Town is an early education program designed for children entering kindergarten. Children attend Safety Town for two hours a day for two weeks. During that time, they learn about a variety of topics taught by the Brecksville Police Department’s staff, as well as a variety of guest speakers including firefighters, nurses, park rangers and lifeguards. Many of the safety lessons are followed up with arts and crafts projects, books and videos and exercises.

A miniature town, complete with streets, houses, traffic signs and a working traffic light is set up outside the classroom. Children learn traffic signs and rules as they drive peddle cars around the town. They can also park their cars and practice pedestrian safety on the town’s sidewalks and crosswalks.

The cost to attend is $20 per participant, and registration begins April 1 for residents and May 15 for nonresidents. ∞
