Kidproof Safety Franchise

Samantha Wilson was a former police officer and she is an internationally known expert in child and family safety. In her job, she knows a lot of information that are cutting edge and informative about child safety. This information was only shared by the law enforcement and other agencies. It is not classified information but it just did not reach those who really needed to know it, who is the children. With this in mind, she formed Kidproof to communicate this information to families and children.
Samantha Wilson said “We were formed for one reason, to help raise child safety awareness by empowering children and parents with knowledge that they can draw from in case of an emergency or dangerous situation”. She started the company as a small community service in Ontario, London, and in Canada. They held child safety programs and seminars. They aim to keep families informed and in the end, keep children safe. They have formed partnerships with the Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCA, City Corporations, Colleges, and Community Centers. They now have four locations in the United States, 11 in Canada, two in other countries, and one that is company owned.
