CONWAY, AR - A push to help children learn about safety concerns in a friendly way.

Safety Town is a week long program that teaches about 100 preschoolers about safety awareness before they hit kindergarten.

They learn things like playground, personal and home safety all in the setting of a tiny town!

This year's program was in Conway's Woodland Heights Baptist Church.

"We do a lot of hands on and I think that anytime you can hit them at all angles with information especially safety information, that's going to be helpful to the kids and the parents," says Jessica Clawson.

The program is put together by the Junior Auxiliary of Conway and Conway Regional Health Systems.
