Swimming is a fun and relaxing activity for the entire family. It promotes a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
However, parents have to observe the following safety precautions at the pool to ensure a safe and enjoyable learning experience.
- Always accompany your child and keep an eye on them when they are swimming in the pool.
- Ensure that the water level is not above your child’s chest area. This is an indication to show if the water is too deep for the child.
- Swimming equipments like floats can help to improve your child’s technique and prevent accidents from occurring too. Therefore it is recommended to purchase a float to assist your child’s learning process.
If the weather turns bad and thunder starts roaring, leave the pool immediately. Do not take your chances.
- Before entering the pool, be aware of where the lifeguards and rescue aids are situated.
