|Description||The Children’s Safety Village of Brant is a place where children ages 4 to 12, regardless of their level of ability or disability learn the fundamentals of safety and awareness. Programs such as fire prevention, smoke alarms, traffic and bicycle safety and stranger awareness are taught. |
Children are encouraged to demonstrate skills they have learned in a miniature town that is complete with sidewalks, roadways, street signs, traffic lights, stop signs and a working railway crossing. The children navigate their way through the village by foot, on bicycles or in small battery powered vehicles.
All activities at the village are supervised by police officers, firefighters and our trained community volunteers. The Children's Safety Village of Brant provides a safe and realistic environment for children to understand and apply the safety lessons they have learned.
Notes: The Village is not open to the public; visits are scheduled by teachers from the City of Brantford, Six Nations and Brant County areas. Three special "public" events are run annually: June: Kids Street Festival; October: Halloween in the Village; December: Christmas in the Village. There are special Summer Day Camps available for certain groups.
