Water Safety for Children

Hexagon with Ring BuoyIn 2013, Winning Swimming started a free, interactive program which educates preschool and elementary age children about the importance of being safe around the water.  All presentations are given by a licensed Life Guard.

During the presentation, we will read the Water Safety with Swimmy book, discuss the 10 water safety rules presented in the book, and watch an educationally licensed Disney DVD about Timon and Pumbaa.  Some of the topics discussed are: the importance of life jackets, how to follow the rules, never swim alone, and how to get help if needed. This program is perfect for preschools, elementary schools, scouts, and youth groups.

Since the program’s inception in 2013, we have reached over 300 children in the Merrimack, NH area with this important information and are looking to expand those numbers in 2016.  The goal of this program is to do our part to help prevent childhood drowning by educating our youth.

The Water Safety for Children program is free to schools in the Merrimack, NH area, however we are open to requests from centers and schools outside the area.  Contact Us to schedule your presentation today.

Testimonial:

“I am the director at Lisa’s Tippy Toes Day Care and Learning Center, Inc.  During our summer programs, Carolanne Caron from Winning Swimming comes to our school and teaches our students about water safety.  The program includes a water safety video, classroom interaction with books and cards along with life vests and provides water safety kits for the kids at a small cost.  She is very hands on with the students and they enjoy the program a lot.

Coach Caron also provides water safety training for all of my teachers.  She provides a handbook for the staff along with a video and hands on material.  I would highly recommend both of her classes to anyone interested in the water safety training courses.

Thank you
