Safer 3 Early Education Drowning Prevention Program

The┬áSafer 3 Early Education Drowning Prevention Program was created by the CPSC, NDPA, and the Safer 3 Water Foundation to help “educators and youth leaders in teaching children about safer behavior in, on and around the water.”

The early education program is available free of charge to any youth care agency in the United States. It is designed as a 10-hour course that should be taught within one or two weeks. It focuses on the importance of the Safer 3 program:

  • Safer Kids
  • Safer Water
  • Safer Response

After each lesson, there’s an age appropriate activity to help the children better understand the importance of water safety.

It is especially important for children between 4-7 years old. That age group is at the most risk of unintentional drowning, and near-drowning incidents.
