Unfortunately, drowning remains the leading cause of unintentional death in children ages 1-4. ️ Swipe to see how the drowning risk varies by age.⠀

It also claims the lives of almost 800 children in the U.S. every year. And two out of three of those deaths occur between the months of May and August.⠀

Parents, it’s July — which means we are in the thick of the season. Don’t let your guards down. Be vigilant and have layers of protection in place to keep your family safe. ⠀
⠀
We encourage you to TALK ABOUT WATER SAFETY with your little ones and family members. It is so very important to make sure everyone is on the same page in regard to having layers of protection and knows what to do in case of an accident. ⠀

For more information about water safety, or to register your child for one of our fall sessions, please see the link in our bio. ⠀
