Learning to swim has many benefits for our children. It’s great for their health and well-being, it encourages their self-esteem and importantly teaches them a respect for the water. Griffith University has done a study which highlights the benefits for children who participate in early years swimming lesson. http://www.griffith.edu.au/education/early-years-swimming/publications
Parents ask yourself these questions.
- Is your child attending swimming lesson?
- If your child found themselves in the water, would they be able to make their way to the edge of the pool unassisted?
- Is your child aware that they need your permission and supervision to swim?
