Swimming exercise involves cardiovascular activity, which enhances both heart and lung condition.
Swimming also increases strength, endurance, flexibility and balance.
Children who engage in regular swimming activity might avoid health issues associated with childhood obesity, including diabetes.
By teaching your children swimming skills, you equip them with water skills that can increase water safety.
Spending time in the water can also be positive for children’s mental health. Swimming may improve mood and decrease anxiety.
- Begin exposing them to books when they are very young.
- Read to them every day, every day, EVERY DAY!
- Make reading time a purely enjoyable experience. It should be a special bonding time and one that you enjoy, too!
- Surround them with a multitude of books. Go to the library or used book store.
- Let them choose what they want to read, just provide lots of great options!
- Read aloud to kids who are old enough to read to themselves.
This is the best swim school for infants and children! All the teachers undergo a rigorous 6-12 week training session (even if they have experience!) and are CPR/First Aid certified. They know more than any other swim school around! This is the only swim school I trust to bring my son to learn about water safety. Kathy Nowak, the owner really knows how to run a fair business. They have reasonable rules to follow, and I love it because she is organized! Billing is recurring and regular, and I have never had a billing issue. I am a responsible parent and follow the rules. My sons is 2 and can swim-float-swim across a 24 foot pool! Lizzie T.
We LOVE Kathy and everyone at Swim Otters! They have a kind a patient approach to teaching water safety & survival. This has been game changing in our household and the service is well worth the money! RK
