The Rochester Area Junior Chamber Presents “Safety Town”

Registration for the Rochester Area Jaycees’ “Safety Town” program, which teaches pre-kindergartners various aspects of life safety, is currently open through the Rochester Enrichment Office. In its 34th year of operation, this summer program seeks to reduce childhood injury by introducing four-, five- and six-year-old children to basic safety concepts through the use of interactive experiences. Registrations will be accepted until all available slots are filled, or until the deadline of Thursday, July 19, 2012.

“Safety Town” is set up to resemble a small-scale “town” with portable buildings, sidewalks, roads, and street signs. The “Safety Town” learning environment is used as a practice area for the safety lessons. This year, “Safety Town” will be held at Delta Kelly Elementary School at 3880 Adams Road in Oakland Township. 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, Police, and Louie the Lightning Bug. 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.
The schedule for the 2012 “Safety Town” is as follows:

Session 1: June 18 – June 28

Session 2: July 9 – July 19

Session 3: July 23 – August 2
