Safety Town is one of most popular summer safety educational programs geared for young 5’s, kindergarteners 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.
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.
