Did you know May is Water Safety Month? At British Swim School of San Diego, their mantra, ‘Survival of the Littlest,’ is at the center of everything they do, with water safety as their #1 priority!

The risk of drowning exists anywhere there is water, especially for children as drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for some groups of children. Through education and water safety awareness, we can prevent the tragedy of drowning.

Teaching children to swim is an important step toward water safety, but swimming lessons alone will not ensure that they are safe in the water. Multiple layers of protection are always recommended by safety experts. Aside from formal swimming lessons, water safety necessitates active monitoring, physical barriers, sirens, and other measures.

Here are some tips to keep you and your family safe in the water:

Water watcher: Always have someone watching your children near any body of water. Ensure that they maintain visual contact with the children the entire time as responsibility is vital around the water. Click here to learn more about our Water Waters Program.
Don’t rely on toys: Floatation devices are not a substitute for supervising your children. DO NOT rely on water wings or any other inflatable flotation device to save a child in a water emergency.
Be ready for anything: Ensure that there is rescue equipment nearby because accidents can happen in seconds and every second matters when saving a life. Learning CPR or updating your skills is always a great idea!
Learn young: The earlier your child learns water survival and safety skills, the earlier they will be able to survive an accident in the water. With our proven teaching methods, even babies can learn to flip onto their back!
Guard your pool: Install a four-sided isolation fence completely separating the pool area from the house and yard, this reduces a child’s risk of drowning by 83%.

British Swim School’s unique water safety program uses teaching methods that are the trademark of their company. Their instructors are dedicated to teaching water safety techniques in a gentle, fun, but most importantly, highly successful approach.
