Protect Your Child From Accidental Drowning

Toddler Swimming Lessons from Baby Otter Swim School

The tragic death of a toddler on March 16, 2020, in Santa Rosa County, Florida, once again highlights the need to teach even the youngest children how to be safe in the water. Toddler swimming lessons are one of the best and most practical ways to safeguard your child against the dangers of swimming pools and other bodies of water. Investing in these swimming lessons could protect your child from incidents like the one that claimed the life of a child in Santa Rosa County.

The Importance of Swimming Lessons

For toddlers and children, water safety is quite literally a matter of life and death. Swimming lessons can provide children with the skills needed to rescue themselves if they should accidentally fall into deep water. While children should always be supervised when they are near any body of water, working with a team that specializes in providing toddler swimming lessons is a solid step in the right direction to provide the greatest possible protection for your children. This could be the best investment you ever make for your child’s future and your continuing peace of mind.

Choosing the Right Method

One of the most practical and effective methods for teaching children to swim is the Turn, Kick, Reach® five-day program. In one lesson per day for five consecutive days, children as young as nine months can learn the basics of swimming to protect them if they fall into the water:

  • Learn to hold their breath and put their face in the water
  • Turn toward the point where they fell into the water
  • Kick with their feet to propel them forward
  • Reach for the side of the pool, pond or other body of water

These simple steps can be taught in just five days and can provide your child with added protection against drowning. This will allow you to enjoy the greatest possible peace of mind regarding your child’s safety in and around the water.
