Watch Around Water Guidelines
Watch Around Water is an education and public awareness-raising program to address the growing concern of supervision of young children at public swimming pools. It aims to define the minimum supervision requirements for children to ensure Pines Forest Aquatic Centre is a safe venue for the whole community to enjoy.
Did you know drowning is the leading cause of preventable death in children under five years of age? From 2013/2014 to 2014/2015, there was a 30% increase in the national drowning rate for the 0-4 age group.
Our lifeguards are essential for safety; however, they are not intended to replace the close supervision of parents and guardians for young children.
