A crèche (community day care centre) is usually established in a room donated by the community or by a crèche mother. A trained crèche mother and her assistant supervise 20-30 children six days a week from 9am-1pm, the highest peak time of drowning. Activities include early learning, social activities (singing, dancing), and health/hygiene education. In addition, they collect information on adverse events and supervise and monitor all activities related to keeping the crèches functioning.
