Studies show that by age 4, most children will have developed motor skills so they can float, tread water and learn basic survival skills. Water confidence is an important first step in learning to swim that can start from as early as 3 months old. Without early-age exposure to water settings, children can become fearful of the water or lack the confidence to put their skills into action when they're ready for swimming lessons.
Regular visits to the pool create a sense of normalcy that inspires confidence in children who are learning to swim. That's why we recommend that babies between the age of 2-6 months start swim school so that they can learn vital water safety skills from a young age.
We have a wide range of classes for every level of skill, starting with Baby Splash swimming classes for your little ones, to help them become accustomed to the water and build confidence (not to mention have fun). For the older kids and adults, we also offer adult swimming lessons and swim squads for more advanced skill levels.
