  The start of the new year is a perfect time to re-energize or add in a new routine for your family, and at Little Fishes Swim School we can help! Swimming has many advantages for the entire family, including increased confidence and water-safety skills, as well as emotional and physical health rewards. When you give the gift of swimming lessons to your child, regardless of their age, you both benefit. Here’s how.

 

Safety and Confidence: At the top of every parent’s list of concerns is water safety. Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional water injury for children under 14. Safe swimming practices and enriched confidence for your Little Fish are built through practice and lots of time in the pool, and are some of the greatest gifts you can give. Enrolling your child in one of our classes, customized for their age and ability, is a great way to promote both of these necessary skills.

 

Health benefits: Swimming also tops the health and fitness list for every age group. Swimming builds and tones muscles, creates endurance that helps promote heart and lung health, and is a great way to maintain or even lose weight. Children with asthma, diabetes, and obesity find swimming to be a great way to alleviate, and even overcome, these aliments. There are also emotional health benefits, such as stress and tension reduction, and relaxation. Plus, there is the parent-child bonding bonus. Parents and infants benefit from the skin-to-skin contact of early swim lessons, but older children and their parents benefit as well from quality time spent together.

 

Little Fishes Swim School offers small class sizes and year-round classes for infants through independent swimmers working on basic stroke technique. Come visit one of our locations, or contact us today, to learn more about our program and how it can benefit your family.
