Preschool Water Safety Initiative


Preschool Water Safety Initiative

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 NSW have developed a suite of educational resources designed for children aged 3-5, to help teach vital water safety messages. The resources include an animated story and a variety of activity sheets.
