The Children’s Safety Village

The Waterloo Region Children’s Village (CSV) is located at 200 Maple Grove Road, in Cambridge, Ontario.  It is situated on 2 ½ acres of land beside Waterloo Regional Police Headquarters.

The CSV is an education facility designed to bring safety messages to more than 22,000 Waterloo Region students in grades 1-6 in an exciting and interactive way.  The Safety Village features a main education building with a Police Classroom that has working traffic lights and road signs and signals and a Fire Classroom containing an apartment with a kitchen / bedroom equipped with smoke alarms and a fire escape ladder.  Additionally, there is a miniature village which contains 27 scaled down buildings, roadways, operational traffic lights, signs, a railway crossing and a roundabout which provides a realistic and safe environment for hands on learning.
