When did you first start swimming lessons for your children?
No we don't have a pool but we started swim lessons when the kids were around 4 years old.
We live on a lake and have a small dock with swim ladder. We started our infants as soon as it warmed up enough. We introduced them to the water and waves and splashes, AND the RULES in a fun way at their own pace. We keep a small wading pool and beach toys down there and fill it with sun warmed bucketfuls of water and they love it, now my grand kids are learning the way my DDs did. They learn how much fun the 'big' water is, and go in when they're ready.
We do. we started teaching her how to swim when she was about 1.5. She is now 4. She uses floaties, but knows how to swim. She just prefers to wear them right now.
We don't have a pool in our yard but we have a tennis/swim club in town that we belong to. All three kids knew how to swim well before they turned 3. I grew up in AZ and pool safety has awlays been a big deal to me.
Not a pool at my home, but the community I live in has one. My kids started swim lessons about age 1.5. We live on the water and kids must know how to swim/save themselves here.
We have a pool and had them in it as soon as the weather and the water were warm enough. They'd have been around 7 months old ...
They're now 11 and have been swimming for years. One goes to two training sessions per week.
