A coordinated effort by Centerville City Schools, Washington Township Fire Department, Centerville Police Department, Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, and Washington Township RecPlex, Safetyville Square is a fun and entertaining way for children entering kindergarten through second grade to learn about safety over the summer. Topics include pedestrian, bicycle, playground, fire, home, water/swimming, and life safety. Children get acquainted with school buses, law enforcement and fire department officers, emergency vehicles, and our child sized Safetyville Square.

Participants will spend weekly sessions in the care of schoolteachers, first responders, and teen volunteers learning about safety through songs, movies, coloring, puppet shows, and games. The children then put their classroom learning into practice by participating in a miniature safety village. They will be taught to be safe pedestrians and motorists with child sized buildings, crosswalks, streets, traffic signals, and signs while getting the opportunity to ride on deluxe big wheel trikes. Students will practice safely boarding and riding a school bus, and representatives from the Washington Township RecPlex will talk about water safety and demonstrate the proper way to wear a life jacket.
