SAFE START SAVES CHILDREN’S LIVES
Here in Florida, kids are never far from a swimming pool, lake or beach, which makes water safety a key concern for parents, caregivers and others. That’s why the Y offers Safe Start, a one-of-a-kind drowning prevention program, which teaches infants and young children the skills they need to be safe and have fun around water. Geared to children ages 6 months to 6-years-old, classes are taught by certified instructors in ten-minute sessions, five days a week for six weeks. Lessons include the Infant Swimming Resource system’s “rollback-to-float” and “swim-float-swim” techniques, which have provided water safety and peace of mind for generations of kids and parents. Safe Start is currently available at a Y neighborhood Family Center near you. For more information, call (407) 599-0113 or email [email protected].
