THE #1 REASON PARENTS ENROL THEIR CHILDREN IN SWIMMING PROGRAMS
In Australia, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in children under five (Royal Lifesavers Drowning Report 2015). Accidental falls into water accounted for 81% with a swimming pool involved in over half (54%).
Early introduction to water safety and swimming skills is key to reducing these figures. A commitment to skill development, teaching water safety and providing parents with the education to minimise risks are the basis of all teaching practices here at Safe Start.
