A parent must accompany the child to each class. Classes run from 10 am to noon on eight consecutive Saturdays at various locations. Kidzwatch Academy is a partnership with the City’s crime prevention unit, fire department, lifeguards and the sheriff’s department. The deadline to apply for the program is Wednesday, June 17.
