Swim Lessons

What is a good age to start swim lessons?

My oldest is 4 and I'd like to get her in lessons but I want to ensure she'll get the most out of them and remember what she has learned.

  • 4 is good, just remember that it will take more than one set of lessons, to teach them to actualy swim. The first lessons are generaly getting the kids used to the water, blowing bubbles, floats, glides, easy stuff. The key to keep her up to what is taught is to take her swimming often to practice, and continue with lessons.

  • We are starting our 2 year old inn swim lessons next month. Its more of a mommy and me class, where they help them get used to the wat. And in a few months she will be taking "survival swimming" lessons.
