You’re never too young or old to learn how to swim. Some children take to water like fish, while others may need an extended period of time to get acclimated to the pool. Swimming is a survival skill that everyone should have and swimming safely is key. Unfortunately, not all kids will get this opportunity. Attention Parents: start thinking about enrolling your child in swimming lessons and Spring is a good time to do so. Summer is around the corner and how do kids like to cool off, that’s right, in water.
You want your child to be comfortable and confident around a pool setting, lake, beach, or basically anywhere where there’s a body of water. It may take quite a few swim lessons for your child to get the hang of it, but it’s okay. Everyone learns at his/her own pace.
You can inquire about swim lessons or swim classes at your local YMCA or look into some private swim schools. If you can, take a tour to see if the swim facility meets your requirements. Check out the size, depth & temperature of the pool, meet instructors, inquire about class size, ask about private lessons, ask how they handle the fear of water, how long are the sessions, or any other questions you may have. Let’s get water ready!
