Infants & Toddlers
Parent & Child Classes
We’re often asked. “What age should I sign up my child for swim lessons?” Our answer. The earlier the better. We know. It’s hard to imagine our babes swimming before they walk or talk, but there are so many benefits to getting their feet wet early with infant and/or toddler lessons. Here’s why.
- Drowning is the single leading cause of injury-related death among children ages 1 to 4.
- Enrolling your young children in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88%.
- Babies aged 6 months and older can learn to survive and thrive in water.
- Swimming lessons aren’t just for kids! It’s a great way for parents to become informed about water safety and drowning prevention.
- Early education also provides your child a positive experience with swimming, allowing them to build confidence and comfort in water.
Cognitive and Social Benefits
Swimming also helps improve cognitive functioning for infants and toddlers. For instance, this includes (but is not limited to):
- Academic Learning
- Language Development
- Reading Skills
- Spatial Awareness
