Peel Children's Safety Village is an educational center designed for students in grades 1 to 3 and 5 to practice safety rules they have learned at school and at home. We offer a wide range of interactive programs that are focused on developing community awareness, internet safety and accident prevention.

"Tell me and I'll forget; Show me and I may remember; Involve me and I will understand." That is the philosophy behind Peel Children's Safety Village, an innovative community project that was launched in 1994.

Peel Children's Safety Village aims to reduce the alarming rate of preventable traffic accidents, the leading cause of death for children aged one to nine.

Until recently, the only place to formally teach elementary school children about safety was the classroom. The Safety Village gives youngsters a facility where they can practice the safety rules they've learned at school and at home.
