Safety Village

Renovated in 2015, there is no better place to provide your children with their essential safety education. Safety Village is a child-size town, modeled after the Glen Ellyn community, complete with buildings, sidewalks, signed intersections, streets and marked crosswalks. The facility is designed to build a foundation of safety awareness in young children in an environment they are familiar with and where they are completely safe.

The key curriculum incorporates personal, pedestrian, passenger, home and play safety in a fun atmosphere that develops confidence, self-reliance and sound decision-making abilities. Many of our recreation programs find their home in the Safety Village, including Safe Kids, Safety Village birthday parties, and Safety Village Camp.

Safe Kids Classes

These interactive classes for ages 3-5 focuses on thinking safely and making safe choices. Kids learn what to do in an emergency, when to call 911 and how to deal with strangers. View upcoming classes >

Safe Kids with First Aid Classes

Safety and first aid go hand in hand! Children learn simple rules to think safely and make safe choices at home and away. We also present basic first aid information, including treatment of small cuts, bumps and bruises, nosebleeds, minor burns and more. Each child receives a safety packet and creates a small first aid kit to take home. Completion certificates are awarded. View upcoming classes >

Safety Village Camps (Summer Only)

Safety Village camps are designed to build a foundation of safety knowledge in young children, including personal, pedestrian, home and play safety, in a fun environment. Children learn how to handle specific safety situations, such as being approached by a stranger and how community workers help people. This program is based on a play philosophy. Classroom visitors, games, crafts, music, stories, films and role playing are a part of the Safety Village curriculum. Children will practice safe riding and street safety in our outdoor learning area. View upcoming camps >
