SC Career Kids Host Safety Town at Union United Methodist Church

IRMO, S.C. – SC Career Kids held its annual Safety Town event this week at Union United Methodist Church, offering a unique learning experience for young children. The event took place from July 8 to July 11, catering to 4-year-olds and rising kindergarten students.

The children engaged in purposeful play within a miniature-sized town that mimicked real-world businesses, a lake, railroad tracks, and roads. Riding tricycles through this small town, they interacted with various tools used by safety experts and heard presentations from policemen, firemen, grocery store workers, pharmacists, and farmers. This interactive environment allowed them to learn important safety lessons in an engaging and practical manner.

SC Career Kids comprises a diverse group of individuals from across the Midlands dedicated to providing educational experiences for children. In addition to Safety Town, the organization held a Career Camp in the afternoons for students in grades 1-5. At Career Camp, children learned about different professions from local businesspeople and tradespeople, gaining insight into various career paths.

Katy Wiggs, the founder of SC Career Kids, emphasizes the importance of teaching students to problem-solve, communicate, collaborate, and innovate. Her vision is to prepare children for the future by equipping them with essential skills through interactive and engaging programs.
