Since March 2020, every aspect of children’s education has been impacted, and this includes the life-saving skill of learning how to swim. The Impact of Coronavirus on School Swimming and Water Safety report reveals that more than one million children could leave school unexpected to swim. And even before the pandemic, almost one in four children could not swim the statutory 25 metres when they left primary school.
This is why it's more important than ever to give our children the opportunity to embrace the gift of swimming. Moving their arms and legs in the water, finding their balance and working those new found muscles are incredibly important for helping children tackle the world. Not just that, but we've heard that it tuckers them out brilliantly, giving mum, dad or carer a chance to get some well deserved shut-eye.
Besides the obvious safety benefits, baby swimming lessons are one of the best things you can do to bond with your baby, as well as being excellent for their development: they help little ones develop learning skills, boost their confidence, improve their co-ordination and enhance their wellbeing.
