Water Safety with Swimmy
Water Safety for Childcare Providers
Our presentation, approved by the New Hampshire Child Care Licensing Unit, qualifies New Hampshire childcare providers to administer and supervise water activities for the children they are charged with. There are now two choices to choose from to obtain your certification: the live presentation and the online course.
Both presentations discuss the state regulations as well as general water safety tips, how to recognize an emergency, basic rescue skills, and various other topics related to water safety. Upon successful completion of the course, participants are given a certificate and/or a participation card. This training is valid for three years.
Perfect for preschool teachers and administrators, daycare providers, scout leaders, babysitters, nannies, parents, and anyone else who works with children who will be participating in water activities in New Hampshire.
The live presentation can be given at your site or ours. The presentation at our site is usually conducted at the beginning of May. Contact Us today to schedule a workshop at your site.
You can also take our new online class here.
Water Safety for Children: In 2013, Winning Swimming started a free, interactive program which educates preschool and elementary age children about the importance of being safe around the water. All presentations are given by a licensed Life Guard.
During the presentation, we will read the Water Safety with Swimmy book, discuss the 10 water safety rules presented in the book, and watch an educationally licensed Disney DVD about Timon and Pumbaa. Some of the topics discussed are: the importance of life jackets, how to follow the rules, never swim alone, and how to get help if needed. This program is perfect for preschools, elementary schools, scouts, and youth groups.
Since the program’s inception in 2013, we have reached over 500 children in the Merrimack, NH area with this important information and are looking to expand those numbers in 2018. The goal of this program is to do our part to help prevent childhood drowning by educating our youth.
The Water Safety for Children program is free to schools in the Merrimack, NH area, however we are open to requests from centers and schools outside the area. Contact Us to schedule your presentation today.
