Kidsafe House and Playground Services
Kidsafe House presents ideas on how to make a home environment a safer place for kids. Information and displays highlight potential hazards throughout the home demonstrating ways to minimise those hazards.
Kidsafe provides information to help make informed choices about safety for a range of settings, including the home and children’s services (such as family day care).
The information and displays at the house will interest those who care about the safety of children. For public and professionals alike, there is something to interest everyone! We invite parents-to-be, parents, carers, grandparents, students, educators and health professionals to tour the house.
The Kidsafe Playground displays a variety of playground surfacing eg, organic mulch and synthetic products; as well as exploratory play areas including a dry creek bed and sandpit; and examples of active and quiet play areas. A timber platform, fixed equipment and cubby area is also provided with suitable options for plants and shade structures.
