Why take the Toddler Swimming Lessons?
Benefits of Toddler Swimming Lessons
Starting your child on swimming lessons early has a whole host of benefits. Research has shown that children who are early swimmers display great social, physical, and mental development. Here are some more reasons why.
Swimming improves cognitive development and functioning
When learning to swim, your child moves both their arms and legs at the same time. This leads to their brain registering the resistance of the water in relation to its tactile sensation. According to a study by the Griffith University in Australia which involved over seven thousand children over a four year period, children aged between 3 - 5 who learnt to swim were 11 months ahead in verbal skills, 6 months ahead in mathematical skills, and 2 months ahead in literacy skills.
Early Introduction aids confidence and decreases the chance for a fear of the water
When you expose your child to the water at an early age, it inevitably makes them more and more comfortable with it. This also greatly increases the chance of building a positive relationship with water and this allows him to be able to translate this confidence to other areas of their lives.
Swimming can be a lifesaver
Should your child ever land themselves in a tricky water situation, they would have developed the confidence and skills to not resort to panic. This can potentially be life saving and would also give you the parent an added sense of assurance and security.
