Research has shown that early childhood physical education is important and improves more than just physical wellness. It also assists and improves mental and emotional development in children too. The earlier the age physical education is taught, the earlier children begin to develop the ability to think critically.
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.
