When it comes to pool supervision, the more eyes the better. All pool and swimming activities must have at least one attentive, certified lifeguard present. To aid a certified lifeguard’s efforts to watch over children from your center, the following child-to-supervisor ratios are recommended (not including lifeguards):

  • 1:1 for ages 0 to 3
  • 4:1 for ages 3 to 5
  • 6:1 for age 5 and older

Also, inspect all drains to be sure that they do not present a suction hazard. Beware of strangulation hazards presented by ropes/floats that separate the shallow and deep ends.
