Water Safety

Summer is just around the corner and educators across all rooms have started to implement water-based activities that provide great early learning opportunities for our children – watering our flower beds, water paintings, sensory water trays including natural resources like lemons from our tree and lots of pouring and stirring experiences, bubble baths and more!

During the warmer months of the year water play is a big hit not only at early learning centres like Buttercups but also in family homes all across Australia! Fun aside, it is important to make water safety a top priority – please have a look at the following article on how parents can reduce the risks of water play. Sadly, an average of 30 children under the age of five have drowned in Australia each year for the past 10 years.
