Drown Prevention Awareness Week

When our little ones were born, we were determined to ensure that our children learnt to be happpy, relaxed and safe in the water from an early age.  We therefore joined our local Water Babies swimming lessons which started when they were tiny and finish as they go to school being able to swim totally unaided in the pool or sea.

Well next week is Drown Prevention Awareness Week in the UK and the Water Babies Team has put together this Fact Sheet as a good guide.

You can find out about your local Water Babies Lessons here, or if you are local to the Little Grippers HQ in Nottinghamshire you can e-mail Marie Smith directly at Marie.Smith@waterbabies.co.uk

We would highly recommend teaching your baby to swim from as young an age as possible.  Here are 2 of the Little Grippers Family Babies happy in the water at about 8 months old.
