Why Take Infant Swim Classes
For many swimming isn’t one of our strong attributes.
This is why many are choosing to sign up for infant swim
classes sometimes as early as six months. It is a fact
that six month old babies can take swim classes with
their parents. While this isn’t the traditional
age you think of when it comes time for kids to start
swimming, many swim instructors and experts are recommended
that you start teaching children to swim before the age
of three years for a variety of physical and psychological
Many fears that come out in adulthood were actually
developed in the cerebrum at a young age. Psychologists
believe this is because of unfamiliarity or bad associations
that are placed into an infant’s subconscious.
Some have speculated that adults who have a fear of water
are those who were never introduced to the water at a
young age or had a bad experience related to water at
a young age. This is why infant swim classes are so important.
Infant swim classes help to get the child in the pool
and give them a sensory experience in the water from
a young age.
Taking part in infant swim classes mean that you and
your child are together which is a happy event that can
lead to positive associations with the water. This gives
the unnatural fear of water little chance to develop.
If you are an adult that can’t swim it is actually
a disability both physically and socially. So it is important
to prevent this from happening by introducing your children
to the water as early as possible with infant swim classes.
It is also helpful when children can associate swimming
with something like a sport. Swimming is an excellent
exercise for all individuals since it uses all the muscles
of the body and develops both upper and lower body strength.
Therefore, from a young age infant swim classes can help
promote calorie burning and get your kids into the exercise
mindset early on. This way it cognitively becomes a habit
that they are more likely to stick with as they grow.
