This year, in order to assist schools with bussing costs, the Children's Safety Village Board of Directors has committed $75.00 per bus for elementary students to attend learning sessions at the Children's Safety Village. Bus arrangements continue to be made by the school. Bus receipts for reimbursement of $75.00, should be mailed to Nikki Roy, Curriculum Services.
The Children’s Safety Village is built on the property of the Belleville Police Service, with the help of local businesses and private sponsors. We are proud to say it is “built by the community for the community”.
The Children’s Safety Village is a non profit organization with charitable tax status. It is governed by a Board of Directors. A complete listing of our Board can be found in the “Board of Directors” section of our web site.
