Teacher's Program Information & Resources

On behalf of the Children's safety Village - Belleville, we thank you for your interest in bringing your class for your grade specific program at our Safety Village. We know your students will enjoy the interactive learning experience that our programs provide for them.

Check with your principal.


Children will receive classroom instruction in combination with practical experience in the controlled environment of the miniature village. Programs at the Children’s Safety Village are 1.5 hours in length and we can accommodate up to two groups a day – recommended times are 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., or 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. 

Click the links below for information to review the curriculum and prepare your class for an enjoyable learning experience during your visit. Parts of our programs are spent outside, so please remind your students to dress accordingly.

Grade Two: Students receive instruction on pedestrian safety along with walking the streets and sidewalks.

Grade Three: Students receive basic instruction on road safety along with driving battery powered jeeps.
 
In Spring 2017, we will begin to merge the Grade 2 & 3 programs.  Teachers may request the program they prefer (pedestrian safety only or combined with jeeps).

Grade Four: Students receive instruction on bicycle safety along with riding bicycles.
(Note: Students not able to ride a bike will participate in a modified outdoor experience).
 
New this fall we are offering classes for Internet Safety and Fire Safety. 

The lessons and activities of the Children's Safety Village will incorporate the current best practice approaches to in jury prevention and will be linked directly to the Ontario Health and Physical Education Curriculum. In particular, the lessons and activities of the Village program will contribute to meeting components of the Healthy Living and Personal Safety and Injury Prevention Strands of the curriculum. Input into the teaching plans is provided by representatives from the Boards of Education.

The lessons taught at each grade level are evidence-based. They are based on current injury statistics and will address the current road safety issues for our target age groups. Children visiting the Village will be provided with the necessary information and opportunities for skill building/development that will hopefully lead to behaviours that will reduce injuries. The children will have opportunities to put into practice what has been taught to them in the classroom: walking, operating a bicycle or driving a mini battery operated car in the controlled environment of the Village. The program will include activities to provide the children with the appropriate tools to learn how to manage their risks effectively.
