JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WTLV) -- Drowning is the number one cause of non-injury death for kids ages one to four and it is 100 percent preventable.

Especially here in Florida where water is all over the place, it's important for kids to learn to swim.

"Most children take better to the water environment if they're taught at an earlier age," says Infant Swim Resource instructor Amy Pritchett.

Infant Swim Resource is a program that starts kids as young as six months in the pool learning to float.

"That is the safest thing you can teach your child a float buys them time to breath comfortably, they're not struggling, and it teaches them it's a place to get their breath and wait for help," said Pritchett.
