PRE SCHOOL EDUCATION VISIT
Drowning is the leading cause of preventable death in children under the age of five in Australia.
More than half of the fatalities in this age group occur in home swimming pools. For every toddler drowning death another ten children are admitted to hospital as a result of non-fatal drowning, many of whom will suffer lifelong consequences.
In response to these worrying figures, Royal Life Saving have developed a specific education program designed for children aged 3-5, to help teach vital water safety messages. Come and join the Waddles family in their adventure to learn more about Pool Safety and River Safety
