AAP Water Safety and Drowning Prevention Updates: A Letter from Our Founders

Today, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) announced that it has published updated recommendations on water safety to prevent drowning in children. As parents and founders of Goldfish Swim School, we could not be more pleased about this important update as we too are committed to education on water safety. We commend Nicole Hughes for her hard work and the AAP for making these very important changes. We appreciate the attention put on the value of swim lessons being beneficial for children at a young age, in addition to the importance of vetting experienced swim lesson programs and well-trained instructors.

As drowning remains the number one cause of injury-related death among children ages 1 to 4, we must all work together to provide education, resources, and lessons for prevention.

As Goldfish Swim School continues to expand its footprint across North America, our number one focus and main priority will remain the same – educating children on water safety while teaching them how to swim and respect the water.

Swimcerely,

Chris and Jenny McCuiston
Founders of Goldfish Swim School Franchising, LLC.
