Goldfish Swim School’s Top 4 Water Safety Tips

Did you know that May is National Water Safety Awareness Month? With summer almost here, this is a great time to think about swim and water safety — and Goldfish Swim School is a great place to do just that!

Drowning is a leading cause of injury and death in young children – but there are things families can do to prevent this from happening.  All kids should have the skills to be safe around the water – and water safety is a top priority at Goldfish Swim School. Today we’re sharing Goldfish Swim School’s Top 4 Water Safety Tips.

1. Always have a “Water Watcher”
Any time kids are in or around the water, designate a “Water Watcher” who will be watching – undistracted – every single second. No phones, no conversations, no distractions.
2. Enroll your kids in swim lessons
The American Red Cross says that the number one thing parents can do to keep kids safe around the water is enroll them in swim lessons. And guess what? Goldfish offers year-round lessons, plus weekly Jump Start clinics during the summer.
3. Floaties, noodles and inner tubes are TOYS
These things are toys – not life-saving devices. They provide parents and kids a false sense of security and shouldn’t be relied upon. Life jackets should always be U.S. Coast Guard-approved.
4. Make water and swim safety a FUN, family activity

Kids learn best when things are fun, and Goldfish Swim School uses the “Science of SwimPlay” to engage even the littlest swimmers. You can also take the family to one of Goldfish’s Family Swim events to make swimming a fun, family activity!

And guess what? Goldfish Swim School Anderson is opening later this year! Of course, if you want to brush up on your swim schools before then, there’s Goldfish Swim School in West Chester!
