Protect Your Kids With FREE Training!

Join the Children's Safety Center for our FREE Steward’s of Children training Tuesday, November 9th from 6-8pm at the Springdale Center for Nonprofits Library, 614 E. Emma Ave. Springdale. In the same building as the Children's Safety Center.

Stewards of Children is a 2 hour workshop that addresses child sexual abuse in the context of today’s issues and teaches you a simple, 5-step approach that can protect the children you love. You also receive a free workbook to take with you and a certificate of completion.

The Children’s Safety Center’s team knows first hand that ending child sexual abuse takes a cooperative, community effort. To end child sexual abuse we must first address the issue head on, be open to have conversations with each other and our children, educate ourselves on the facts, and learn how to prevent abuse from happening.

Space is limited! RSVP by contacting CSC Program Director, Casey Atwood: casey@childrenssafetycenter.org or call 479.872.6183

"It was like Christmas right out of Norman Rockwell, straight into the hearts of all aboard"

If you have not yet had the opportunity to experience this magical event, we invite you to join us for this year’s train ride. Children’s Christmas Train riders will depart from the Emma Street Train Depot in Downtown Springdale on Saturday, December 2nd aboard a restored 1940's era train. The 40 minute ride to Johnson and back will include singing Christmas carols, stories, and even a visit from Santa himself! After returning to the Train Depot families can enjoy holiday games and entertainment – ride ponies dressed as reindeer, operate a model train, participate in the cake walk, write a letter to Santa or just enjoy the characters and live music in Santa's Village. Children and families are also encouraged to dress in Holiday attire.

Children 2 years of age and under do not require a ticket but will have to sit on your lap, $10 for ages 3-12, and $20 for adults. Rides are on the hour every hour from 8:00am - 3:00pm. Santa's Village is open from 9:00am - 3:00pm for kids crafts and activities.
This event will sell out.

The Children's Christmas Train is a fundraiser for the Children's Safety Center.
