Child Safety Events

Helping Prevent Injuries and Accidents

Habitot’s annual Early Childhood Safety Campaign, now in its 17th year, seeks to address the high number of unintentional accidents among very young children—“the biggest threat to the life and health of children one to six years old”, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Thanks to State Farm for sponsoring Habitot's 2019 Early Childhood Safety Campaign: Car Seat Checks and Safety Fair Days are free admission events.


Join us for our annual safety campaign to help prevent early childhood accidents and injuries. Community experts from the Red Cross, Berkeley Public Health, and others will be at Habitot to demonstrate ways to keep young kids safe including poison control, earthquake safety, non-toxic homes, toddler helmet fittings and sales, stranger safety ID cards and more.
