KETTERING SAFETY VILLAGE 2018 Kettering Safety Village, sponsored by the Dor-Wood Optimist Club, is a FREE week-long transportation and life-safety program for children who are attending Kindergarten in August 2018. The City of Kettering’s Engineering Department Safety Section in collaboration with Kettering City Schools is proud to operate this program designed to teach our youngest citizens how to be safe. Safety Village instructors are joined by Kettering police, fire and school personnel to provide age-appropriate classroom instruction on a variety of safety topics to participants. Children get to practice and reinforce what they’ve learned at our indoor Safety Village, with child-size replicas of streets, intersections and buildings. Children also participate in a variety of additional activities, including a ride on a Kettering school bus and a “Safe Walk” in a neighborhood. Through classroom instruction and fun and exciting hands-on experience, young children will begin to develop safe habits for a lifetime. Students enrolled in any elementary school within the City of Kettering who complete Kettering Safety Village will receive a FREE Kindergarten supply starter kit.
