Swimming is the one sport where a child learns to thrive in a totally different environment: In the water. While learning swimming skills, a young child is stimulating and developing a whole different area of his young brain.
Additionally, babies can participate in learn-to-swim activities with their parent at their side long before they can walk, supported by warm, soft water that both provides buoyancy and natural muscular resistance to their movements. Talk about a well-rounded workout!
Early childhood swimming opens up opportunities for children to make the most of themselves, getting a jump start on school in a joyful environment. It is indeed an activity that has lifelong health, safety, and academic benefits!
