Safety Town

About the ProgramSafety Town

Safety Town is an early childhood safety education program designed to introduce all types of safety conditions to four, five, and six-year-old children. During a ten-day course, children learn safety behavior through their own involvement. They do this by role-playing in simulated and actual life situations (under the guidance of a teacher and a police officer). Safety-songs, poems, art projects, stories, movies, and a bus trip, combined with actual practice, make this program a fun, learning experience that children eagerly look forward to attending!

Sponsored by: National Safety Town Center in cooperation with the Brookings Police Department.

This year will include some changes due to COVID-19. Children and parents will be required to bring and wear masks while inside school facilities as well as practice social distancing. Individuals who are not feeling well or showing signs of illness should stay home. Safety Town graduation which is usually held indoors will be held outside this year.

Registration will begin April 20th, 2021.  All registrations are handled online through the Parks and Recreation Online Registration. Space is limited to 30 children per session. Registration will continue through Parks and Recreation until spots are filled. If all slots are filled, your child can be placed on a waiting list and no payment is required at that time. To have your child added to the waiting list, or if you are unable to register via the online registration please contact Chris Larson at the Brookings Police Department (605) 692-2113.

Once registered a schedule and other pertinent information will be mailed to you.
