About Author

I am a happily married ex-swimmer from London, England. I swam competitively for over 10 years competing both nationally and internationally. I have a 20 year old daughter, Hannah, that has been swimming since before she can even remember and floating before she was even walking. She was a competitive swimmer and is currently in her last few months at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy training to become an officer in the Coast Guard. I also have a 23 year old stepson that enjoys swimming in many Special Olympic events. I was a lead teacher in a Montessori School for 17 years and have therefore had a lot of experience with young children. This has given me the tools to deal with many different personalities. I am very loving, strong, and motivating which allows me bond quickly with the children helping the learning process. For past 14 years, I have tought hundreds of children to be safe and confident in and around the water. A 2 year old student of mine that had been taught these water safety techniques some 10 months before, fell into a freezing cold, muddy pond and used his newly acquired skills to save himself in a situation that could easily have ended in a horrific tragedy. It has been because of amazing incidences like that and the joy of that little boy’s parents that I have dedicated myself in the mission to ensure that every child has water safety skills!

WATER SAFETY INFORMATION We live in a region surrounded by water. Drowning tragedies happen far too often here, and throughout the U.S.  According to DCF Florida, 88 children lost their lives due to drowning in Florida alone in 2018.  According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), drowning is the number one cause of accidental death for infants and young children between the ages of 1-4. Survival swim lessons can prevent these tragedies and truly save lives. As a drowning prevention resource for your family, I  recommend a multi-layered approach towards water safety in your home. 5  LAYERS OF PROTECTION  1. Supervision  ADULT SUPERVISION is the most important line of defense. Aquatic skill at any level cannot take the place of active supervision. If you cannot find your child always look in the water first. 2.Alarms Alarms and locks should be placed on all windows and doors that lead to
by Alisha Dos Santos Some additional statistics by Emma Grynbal. Living in Tampa Bay, I feel blessed to be surrounded by water. I love that I can raise my kids somewhere where they can swim and enjoy the pool, lake and ocean year-round.As a girl who grew up in the pool with parents who were lifeguards and competitive swimmers, I never had a fear of water or realized its dangers until I grew much older. I learned to swim with my parents so early that I have no memory of the learning process. Swim Lesson Learned When my son was born and our family moved to a Florida lake, I knew I wanted and needed him to learn to swim at a young age. But I didn’t know where to start. When he was around age two, I started taking him to the popular local swim school for weekly lessons.
