Swimming pools essentials and considerations

Swimming pools can pose some danger so it's better to take proper precautions.

Children should be trained for swimming after the age of 4 years because that is when they are developmentally ready.

Swimming Essentials to be kept handy while going swimming with your child:

  • Swimming costume
  • Towel
  • Shampoo and Shower gel
  • Hair clips and bands
  • Swimming Cap
  • Goggles (Swimming Glasses)
  • Armbands
  • Swim nappies (if required)
  • Tan lotion

Children are often quite excited about water, but do consider these water safety basics when you are in a pool with your child:

  • Keep a continuous watch on kids; this is mandatory everywhere - in a bathtub or in a swimming pool.
  • Check the quality and strength of the tubes that your child is using.
  • Don’t be pushy. If the child is too scared, take them out of the water and try again later.
  • If the child is learning to swim, an adult should swim at arm’s length (close to the child).
  • Children should be away from the pool when adults are not around, never leave the child unsupervised.
