​Safety Town is one of most popular summer safety educational programs geared for young 5’s, kinderga​​rteners and first graders. Sponsored by the Ann Arbor Police Department and the Ann Arbor Recreation and Education Department (Rec & Ed), the program is designed to teach children about safety in a fun and interactive learning environment.

Participants w​ill:

  • Learn how to evaluate safe from unsafe when confronted with potentially dangerous situations. 

  • Explore a child-sized mock Ann Arbor "town" on bicycles. 

  • Hear from guest speakers including police officers, firefighters, healthcare workers, bike safety specialists and "Buster the Bus," AAPS's own talking school bus. 

  • Sing songs, play games, listen to stories and create art projects that reinforce the lessons being taught. 

Our program ​​includes classes such as: bike and vehicle safety, stranger safety, fire safety, pedestrian safety, and riding a school bus.
