Did you know supervision is the number one way to keep your children safe?
Active supervision means focusing all of your attention on your children all of the time, when they are in or around the water.
Supervision is not an occasional glance while you are busy with other activities It is being in constant visual contact with your child, and being in the water with them if they are 5 and under.
Council's definition of adequate Supervision is aligned with the Royal Life Saving Society, where:
Lifeguards are an important safety feature at Council's Leisure & Aquatic Centres, but they DO NOT replace the adequate and active supervision of parents/guardians.
You are your child's lifeguard!
Council's Leisure and Aquatic Centres are partnered with Royal Life Saving NSW's Keep Watch @ Public Pools program.
