Great Falls Safety Town Summer 2022

Be part of the Pilot!

Children entering Kindergarten in the Fall of 2022 are invited to

take part in the pilot for the first Great Falls Safety Town!

There are a limited number of spots available, and REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

What is Safety Town?

Safety Town is a mini village with a purpose.

Safety Town was established in 1937 by a police officer and a kindergarten teacher after a child was hit by a car and killed walking to school. It started with traffic safety and has expanded to other areas.

Our program is offered in partnership with GFCMSU-Lifelong Learning, Great Falls Public Schools, and the National Safety Town Center.

It is a fun and educational program designed to introduce a variety of safety concepts to children entering

Kindergarten in the Fall of 2022.

The program will help children develop positive attitudes and values toward safety, which will help them throughout their lifetime. Safety topics include traffic, gun, fire, stranger, bus, home, and more! The children will practice being safe pedestrians and motorists in the mini village. This, combined with songs, art projects, and videos, provides a fun learning experience for the children.

In addition, there will be guest speakers to promote safety that may include the Fire and Police Departments, School Bus, Railroad, and Emergency Medical Personnel, etc.

The main objective for Safety Town is to create an environment for children to practice what they have learned through constructive play.
