Watch Around Water

The ARC supports the WATCH AROUND WATER program and follows their guidelines:

Children under 14 years are not allowed entry unless under active supervision of a person 16 years or older

Parents or guardians should actively supervise their children at all times. As such, they should be dressed ready for action, including unexpected entry to a pool

For under 5 year olds a parent or guardian is in the water at all times (within arm’s reach) of the child. It is best if you are engaging with your child i.e. playing with them, talking to them, touching them

For under 10 year olds a parent should be close enough to make eye contact with the child and be constantly watching them.
