Safety Town is a nationally recognized safety awareness and education program offered by the Orange Early Childhood Center for children entering kindergarten. Children who are currently in kindergarten will also have the opportuity to attend Safety Town this year because we were not able to provide this valuable opportunity last summer.
Children will learn important safety basics including: fire safety, bus safety, water safety, pedestrian safety, poison safety, playground safety, bike safety, and gun safety. Children will visit the following community places to learn more about each topic: Pepper Pike Fire & Police Stations and Orange High School Outdoor Pool. Children will also practice riding the bus and driving cars on our mini Safety Town.
