What is a Children's Safety Village?
A Children's Safety Village represents a community that values the well-being and safety of their children. They have made an investment in the future – our children.
The Saugeen Valley Children's Safety Village is a community project to construct an innovative and interactive educational safety facility – an environment to educate children in safety and aid in the elimination of preventable childhood injuries and fatalities.
While the main focus of the Saugeen Valley Children's Safety Village will be on school-age children between Kindergarten and Grade Six, there will be additional community safety events for all ages. Though geographically central to schools in Grey and Bruce Counties, the Village will extend beyond these boundaries to include Huron, Perth, Simcoe, Dufferin, and Wellington Counties. The Saugeen Valley Children's Safety Village will be open to all children and has been designed to accommodate physically challenged children, youth, and adults. There will be no charge for children attending school programs.
If you could make a difference in the life of a child – would you?
The Saugeen Valley Children's Safety Village CAN make a difference in the life of a child and up to 10,000 children per year. YOU can make a difference with your support.
Incorporated in 2009, the Saugeen Valley Children's Safety Village is a Not-for-Profit Registered Canadian Charity.
The Saugeen Valley Children's Safety Village will consist of two major components – the Town Hall (classroom facility) and a Miniature Village (a child's size Village consisting of down-sized buildings, detailed scaled-down roadways, operating traffic lights, road signs and interactive sites). Children will be "involved" in hands-on safety programs providing them with the knowledge and practical experience to react safely in emergency situations. The Safety Village will develop a "safety culture".
