of the World is Water
The YMCA’s Safety Around Water program can help kids learn essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them to satisfy their curiosity safely.
WHAT IS SAFETY AROUND WATER?
This 8-day course, taught by a certified instructor, teaches children two sets of skills that will reduce the risk of drowning and give them confidence in and around water. A typical session includes:
Each lesson includes a handout for parents and caregivers with additional water safety tips.
The Safety Around Water program is currently in its piloting stage, with the goal of providing every child in our community the opportunity to develop these skills.
To make this program a success, we need YOUR help!
The donor-supported Safety Around Water program is free to participants and is currently offered in partnership between the Greater Peoria Family YMCA and Peoria Public Schools, Peoria Park District and Peoria Area Water Wizards.
