A weekly swimming lesson is often a childs first social experience out of the home that involves their peers. They learn to relate and interact with each other and look forward to seeing their classmates each week, and even watch them for cues when it comes to taking risks and learning something new. The best way for babies to learn is by example, and as they are with children their own age, a lot of fun goes along with it.
A key element in helping young kids to develop their water confidence, is to teach them about submersion and how to feel comfortable putting their head underwater. Young kids can sometimes be afraid to submerge their head fully underwater, but as a parent you can play a huge role in teaching your kids this core swimming skill from an early age.
