You will learn the 3 Skills to practice outside of swim lessons to help your child swim faster then with swimming lesson alone.

Learn to identify and overcome the 2 roadblocks to learning to swim: water sensitivity and the fear of falling or water buoyancy. Remember, drowning is still a leading cause of death or severe injury for children under the age of 5, diligence around any water is paramount. Also, many children are traumatized by forceful lessons or near drowning events. Never turn your back on a child when you are in a pool or near any water. No matter how safe your child seems to be in the water don’t have a false sense of security.

It’s very important to begin orientating your child to the water as early as 6 months. Babies are born with a swimming reflex that begins to dissipate at 6 months. This reflex is a natural reaction to submersion and the baby will instinctively hold their breath as well kick their feet. Babies can’t actually swim, however, you can condition behaviors that will help orientate to the water and increase their chances of surviving an accidental submersion. I will provide information here that will help you prepare your child of any age for swimming lessons and instruction on how you can practice to expedite the learning to swim process.

Your child will be as comfortable in the water as you are, therefore, if you are scared of the water yourself have another adult practice with your child outside of swim lesson. It’s never too late to learn to swim, if you are a non-swimming adult give yourself the gift of swimming and learn yourself.

It’s important to work with a skilled instructor that can help teach you the skills necessary to effectively work with your baby in the water. However, the key to instilling behaviors that can save your baby's life and help them learn to swim faster is what you do to practice as a parent outside of a lesson environment.

Safety First

The first behavior your child must master is to never enter the water or jump of a wall unless they have been cued to enter. Always, count to three before entering the water. Always, work from the stairs or wall and have your child turn back to where the started . You want to condition your child to return to the wall or stairs after they swim to you.
