Missed this weeks activities? Here’s a recap of our tips from March 16-27:

* With kids at home unexpectedly and many parents either working remotely or still required to work outside the home, the risk of drowning for children increases. Kids are naturally drawn to water-related activities and they may spend more time without uninterrupted supervision or in the care of unfamiliar caregivers. It is essential that families give extra attention to the new challenges and dangers this change in daily routine presents. For more information, contact us at [email protected].
