Drowning is #1 Cause of Accidental Death of Children Ages 1-4!!!
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that drowning is responsible for more deaths among children aged 1–4 years than any other cause except congenital anomalies. 6,648 children under the age of 4 drown each year!
Reduce the number of children drownings — One Baby at a Time™.
We enable more families to access life-saving swim training. So when a child inevitably finds a way through the layers of protections put in place, they will have a fighting chance to save themselves.
HOW WE DO IT
WE EQUIP FAMILIES AND MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS WITH THE RESOURCES NEEDED TO DRIVE UNIVERSAL ADOPTION OF SURVIVAL SWIM TRAINING
Working with the American Academy of Pediatrics, we educate parents, pediatricians, first responders, and the general public on the importance of making survival swimming as commonplace as car seats. To facilitate widespread adoption, we serve as a central hub that certifies high-quality instructors, connects families to these instructors, and offers scholarships.
WHY WE DO IT
Making A Difference
One Baby at a time is in the business of changing lives. The work we do at our Non-Profit Organization is aimed at providing an education approach to solving some of our society’s biggest challenges. We make sure our Swim Instructors are highly rated, certified for families in their own communities.
Children can swim before they can walk and should be taught!
In March, the American Academy of Pediatrics AAP revised its recommendation regarding the age a child should learn to swim — from 5 years old to 1 year old. The updated guidelines state, “This new policy and campaign is about water competency and urging parents that all swim lessons are not created equal. Pediatricians are now recommending 1-year-old children can enroll in high-quality swim lessons to help reduce risks of drowning.”
BECAUSE NO FAMILY SHOULD HAVE TO ENDURE THE GRIEF OF LOSING A CHILD
As the number one reason for accidental death in children between the ages of one and four, drowning causes unspeakable suffering for too many families and communities. We have the power to prevent these tragedies, as well as the heartbreak that is left in their wake.
