Safe-T-City is a child pedestrian and traffic safety program combined with a life safety course. This program is conducted for children entering kindergarten in the up-coming school year. Please note that 1st graders are not eligible for this program. Safe-T-City includes classroom instruction and outdoor practice in a miniature city complete with streets, sidewalks, small buildings, traffic lights and stop signs.
The children are assigned to classes (no more than 15 children per class) with a certified instructor. During the 20 hour course the children learn, through participation, in a setting of simulated real-life situations. Guest speakers from different community resources help the children learn through songs, poems, art projects, stories, and movies. Police officers teach pedestrian safety on the streets of Safe-T-City. The different lessons provide an enjoyable learning experience.

The Safe-T-City program also offers opportunities to those students entering the 6th grade or above. These students can gain valuable experience by volunteering to be a teacher’s assistant.
