Our History

1995

A planning committee was struck by local Rotary Clubs to explore creating a similar Safety Village in Windsor-Essex

2000

The Rotary Children’s Safety Village was incorporated as a Registered Charity and land was received in-kind from the City of Windsor

Construction began on the nearly 10,000 sq. ft. teaching facility we have today. The building was designed by Passa and Associates and built by Woodall Construction

2003

The first school class entered our doors for safety education training.

2004

With formal programming underway, the Rotary Clubs determined it would be better to have an independent Board of Directors to oversee the programs and progress of the organization.

2005

The Rotary Children's Safety Village was recognized with a Prince Michael of Kent citation.

2011

The Safety Village took on Crime Prevention programs from the City of Windsor, launching a pilot Neighbourhood Watch program in the Walkerville community.

While a number of committed Rotarians continue to sit on the Board, it also includes a number of professionals with a keen interest in bringing safety awareness and education to the community.
