Is your child safe at home?

Having spent almost 24/7 at home daily during this lockdown period for the past 2 months, we realized that there’s actually a lot of hazards around the house that might just slip our minds.  Here are some water-safety tips to keep you and your child safe at home.

Fact: People can drown in just 2cm of water! So, remember not to leave your child unsupervised in baths. What can you do? Empty bathtubs after every use!

You never know when your child decides that the washing machine might be a good hiding place. What can you do? Install a child lock on the doors.

Falling into washbasins might not only cause near-drowning, but it might also cause brain and head injuries. What can you do? Remove the plug and keep washbasins empty after use.

A bucket of water might seem far from being a water hazard but you will never know what might happen when you leave your child unsupervised. What can you do? Empty the buckets and keep the buckets away when it’s not in use

Having a fish pond around the house might be for recreational purposes or for some, it might be for “feng-shui” purposes. Don’t let this become a disaster when your younglings happen to fall into it. What can you do? Install isolation fences with self-closing and self-latching gates around

Your child might have fun running around the house, exploring every nooks and corner. They might come across the water tank installed and fall unexpectedly into the tank. What can you do? Make it accessible emergency shut-off for pump

The tropical weather year-round in Malaysia especially during this lockdown period has led a lot of people to purchase their very own inflatable paddle pool for their child at home. Are you one of them? What can you do? Keep your children supervised when they are playing in the paddle pool. Remember to empty it and put away after use.

You might have a splash pool around your condo or clubhouse. It might also be a vacation in a hotel or water-parks. Have you ever thought of the dangers in within on top of the fun that you are about to experience? There are estimated 4174 people on average each year are treated in hospital emergency departments for non-fatal drowning injuries in recreational water settings, over 65% of these cases occurred in swimming pools and over 52% were in children under the age of 5 (CDC, 2004). It might be a near-drowning experience, it might also be an injury caused when sliding down the ginormous water-slide that seems unthreatening at first glance. What can you do? Educate your child on the possible water hazards before letting them off to play. Safeguard your child by keeping a close eye on them. When we say supervise, it means undivided attention on your child’s every movement with them in sight and proximate distance (aka putting away our phones).

A number of drowning deaths have also occurred after the body or a limb has been held against a drain by the suction of the circulation pump, typically between the ages of 8 and 16 years. (CPSC, undated) Being confined in a closed space might lead your lil ones to play with open drains, inserting hands or feet into the pipe, and then becoming trapped with the resulting suction. What can you do? Regular checks on the locked safety covers. Ensure the accessibility to emergency shut-off for pump and emergency services.

Contributory factors to drowning in hot-tubs: 1) Hair entrapment, 2) Alcohol consumption, 3) High water temperatures Believe it or not, over the period of 5 years (1999-2003) there were 1,676 Americans reported having drowned in a tub ( Scripps Howard News Service, 2018). Approximately one-third of these were drownings of children under five years of age (CPSC, undated). What can you do? Maintaining water temperature in hot tubs below 40 °C. Install Grilles/pipes on drain gates preclude hair entrapment. Continuous parental/caregiver supervision of children. Restriction of use when alcohol is likely to be consumed.

All in all, we can show you the stats and studies recurring around drowning and near-drowning but the best prevention is always early education and awareness on water safety.

Baby/Toddler Swimming Program

After planning for over a year… we are pleased to announce that #BBAProgram has now officially launching it’s first class this March 2019! ?‍???

Our first BBA program was conducted 4 years ago, however we found that our first baby swimming program wasn’t able to deliver the objectives that we always wanted… that is helping babies and toddlers to be healthily confident in the water that contributes to improved cognitive function, muscles development and coordination & balancing abilities. Although, we might have swim throughout our entire life, this area of baby/toddler swimming requires another level of expertise and specialization in order to be delivering the objectives that we aimed for.

Hence, we have stopped our first swimming program after conducting it for over a year and continued to work on to research and study how we can run this program effectively and efficiently to achieve our key objectives for the program.

After about 2 years of studies and research, we have finally able to reach out to a consultation firm in Australia, lead by Ms. Robyn Grealy that specialises in baby swimming program and special needs swimming program.  It was a wonderful 1 year planning and working in our continuous  research and development effort, as the program in the western countries may not necessarily work here, especially in a totally different set of environment, culture and mindset.

Finally, after all the tweaking and re-designing of the BBA Program, we are proud to announce that BBA Program is now back in March 2019! We have already conducted 2 months of BBA Program here at Leaderland Kindergarten (Bukit Jambul) and we are pleased to share with you some of the updates of the program and photos we have taken over the past 1 month!

Upgraded Facilities:

  1. Water Quality – the pool is mainly used for BBA Program and our Pre-School swimming program. As for now, BBA classes are only available during the weekends hence the swimming pool will be closed on Friday for a complete cleaning and hygiene control work.
  2. Water Temperature – This should be the first outdoor swimming pool in the northern region where it is a heat and temperature controlled swimming pool! So all babies and toddlers can truly enjoy their experience in the water comfortably without feeling cold and uneasy!
  3. Floating island – There are 2 floating island installed in the swimming pool, where baby and toddler can stand confidently in the water while going through different activities that require them to be a little more independent and adventurous.. we also find out that the floating island sparks a lot of creative imagination and this definitely help in the development of cognitive functioning!
  4. More to come – more games and facilities will be introduced to make the program even more interesting! We are also looking at expanding the shower room so baby and parents can comfortably shower and change to prepare for their next destination of the day!

The benefits to both parent and baby. Also, why we call it Baby Bonding Aquatics Program:

  • Plenty of eye contact
  • Plenty of skin contact – it’s a wonderful way to bond with your baby
  • Helping you and your baby feel relaxed and confident in the water
  • Makes swimming a fun and socially stimulating activity (for both you and your baby!)
  • Even parents who can’t swim can enjoy relaxing in the water with their baby

Getting baby adapting to the class and the new environment!


Let your baby change while enjoying the beautiful view of the swimming pool and trees around the pool!

This program is actually focusing in educating the parents/caregivers as they are the one who will spend the most of the time with their children in the water. So it is very important that parents have the right knowledge and approach in introducing water to their children!

It is a step by step process.. so sit back, enjoy the journey and see how your child shines in the water!

Finally, the takeaway…

As long as you’re taking all the necessary precautions and giving your baby your undivided attention, swim time can be perfectly safe.

Another benefit to infant swimming is that it’s a wonderful parent-child bonding experience. In our hectic, fast-paced world, slowing down to simply enjoy an experience together is rare.

Swim time with our babies brings us into the present moment while teaching them important life skills. So grab your swim bag and wade in!
