As the spring season approaches, many parents start thinking about swimming lessons for their children. One common question that comes up is what is the average age a child can swim? At Baby Otter Swim School, we believe that swimming lessons should start as early as nine months of age. We understand that drowning can happen at any age, which is why we are dedicated to teaching water safety and swim instruction to children of all ages.
Research shows that children under the age of 3 are at higher risk of drowning, which is why we prioritize teaching even the youngest children how to swim. Our proprietary Turn, Kick, Reach® method is age-appropriate and effective for children as young as nine months. By starting early, children can develop the skills they need to increase their chances of survival should an incident occur.
But what makes Baby Otter Swim School different from other swim schools?
For starters, we are a traveling swim school that offers swim lessons in the comfort of your own pool. This means that your child can learn to swim in a familiar environment without the distractions of a public pool. Additionally, we offer swim programs for adults, so the whole family can learn about water safety and enjoy swimming together.
At Baby Otter Swim School, we understand that every child is different, which is why we provide individualized instruction tailored to each child’s needs. Our goal is to make swimming a fun and safe activity for everyone, regardless of age or experience level. So, whether you have a nine-month-old or a teenager, we have a program that will meet their needs.
The average age a child can swim is not as important as starting swim lessons as early as possible. At Baby Otter Swim School, we believe that children as young as nine months can benefit from our Turn, Kick, Reach® method. By starting early, children can develop water safety skills that can potentially save their lives. Contact us today to enroll your child in our age-appropriate swim instruction program.
