Learning how to swim is a rite of passage every child should experience. Not only is swimming fun and great exercise, but knowing how to swim will help keep your child safe during summertime activities. If you haven't enrolled them in swimming lessons yet, now is the time to do it.
According to the CDC, drowning is the top cause of accidental death for children ages 1 – 4. It is responsible for about 4,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. Teaching young children how to swim and be safe around water can help reduce these numbers. Swimming lessons will teach them how to swim while also educating them on pool safety and common hazards to avoid.
