Speaker 1: May is water safety month.
So this morning we’re here at Small Fish Big Fish in West Palm Beach teaching you how to
keep your kids safe. And joining me now to help us out is the founder Melissa Taylor.
Good morning. Speaker 2: Good morning. S1: So how, when should you start teaching
your kids about water safety? S2: The earlier the better. Here at
Small Fish Big Fish Swim School we take them as young as two, two and a half months old
and we take them right up to swim team level. We teach adults, we believe swimming is a
life long sport. We teach them self confidence, discipline and well being through swimming.
The younger they start the better the foundation. As infants we’re told to have our children
get as much tummy time as possible. In the water they’re able to move freely, they can
move so much more in the water that they can in land. S1: And so today you’re having an event
to teach parents some of these things. S2: Well with conjunction of National
Water Safety month, we have decided to do our grand opening where brand new indoor facility
with a shallow teaching pool. Our pool is heated 90-92 degrees and it’s three to four
feet deep. We have kites hanging from the ceiling, so when we teach floating the kids
aren’t looking at the sun. They’re able to swim year round and it’s really an optimal
environment. S2: Alright thank you so much. Well
they’re gonna have plenty of people here teaching kids about water safety and we are gonna have
finger painting, a lot of activities for the kids today. Again we’re here at Small Fish
Big Fish. It’s located at 346 Pike Road in West Palm Beach…
