Why is swimming good for kids development?
Splashing around and gliding kids through the water helps babies becomes more confident and improves their balance and co-ordination! Taking kids swimming at a young age helps kids become confident and comfortable in the water, making it less likely for them to have a fear of water.
Swimming is great exercise for parents and baby as it works our muscles, lungs and hearts and is a great form of exercise that is gentle on our bodies. Lessons can start as early as 4 months for Parent and Tot Lessons.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the best age to start swimming lessons?
The ideal time for children to take swimming lessons is between the ages of 1-4 years old, however you can start swimming lessons as young as 4-6 months old depending on the place.
When can babies go Swimming? When can my baby start swimming lessons?
However, your baby can actually go swimming at any time from birth in a pool, although most baby swimming classes as young as four months in some places. I couldn’t wait to get both my kids in the water as swimming is a lifeskill to me, and necessary for our family lifestyle as we spend alot of time around pools, and lakes. If your baby is younger than 6 months make sure the pool you choose is heated so that baby won’t be too cold.
What is the Swim Policy For Babies/Kids not Potty Trained?
Make sure you bring a swim diaper. The Policy is that every baby must have a swim diaper to enter the pool. My favorite is Huggies Swimmers, you can buy them at Walmart or on Amazon. The best price I have been able to buy them is $10.97 with a 2.00 off coupon so $8.97. I really like Huggies Swimmers as they have adjustable sides and can fit even the smallest babies like my daughter who weighed just 10 pounds when she first went swimming at 3 months old.
