It’s hot outside, and cool water is extra inviting. If you have a pool, it’s important to make sure that you set family rules around use of the pool and make it clear that children can only swim if an adult is present to supervise.
Did you know that drowning is a leading cause of death for children ages 1-6? From beaches to creeks to pools to bathtubs, it only takes a few inches of water to pose a danger for your child or grandchild. Teaching kids water safety is one of the most effective ways to help them stay safe around water. Swimming lessons are available at a number of facilities in Hendricks County.
Gill Family Aquatic Center
Children ages 6-12 can learn to swim at Gill Family Aquatic Center in Danville. Scuba lessons are also available, so if you’re planning to try something new on your next vacation, maybe you’ll want to give it a try a bit closer to home first. Find more information here.
