Children's Safety Village

The Positive Choices Community Village is a portable, fun and interactive display which is taken from school to school. It is where children up to Grade 3 will learn about traffic safety, crosswalks, school bus safety, drug awareness, become street proofed, deal with cyber-bullying and more. The gymnasium-sized community safety village includes a large mat with a printed grassy perimeter, street and sidewalk in an oval. Miniature versions of a school and school bus, fire hall, house, hydro lines and a pond are placed around while kids will ride in battery-powered cars.
