Want your little one to get a head start when it comes to swim readiness? Baby swimming lessons in Chicago help young children become acclimated to the water and teach them basic water safety skills. Your little one may not be ready for “traditional” swimming lessons, but they can begin learning skills that keep them safer in and around the water, as well as prepare them for success in future swimming lessons. With consistent lessons, even a very young child can begin learning survival and swim readiness skills in a way that makes swimming fun! Overall, the most important reason to consider baby swimming lessons is safety but they also help children become comfortable in an unfamiliar aquatic environment and teach respect and love for the water!
About Our Baby Swimming Lessons in Chicago
With nearly 40 years of experience, highly trained Instructors, and warm indoor pools, British Swim School of Downtown Chicago is the ideal location to introduce your little one to the water! In addition to teaching young children to love the water, we teach lifesaving skills through a structured program of songs, games, and fun! Parents are asked to participate in the learning process until young children are skilled enough to swim independently, but baby swimming lessons can be just as beneficial for caregivers! They play an important role in strengthening the parent-child bond and teach important water safety tips to keep children safe at home, on vacation or anywhere outside of our lessons!
Don’t delay: Babies can begin learning water acclimation and beginner water survival skills as early as 3 months old! Here’s a quick look at some of the skills taught in our baby swimming lessons:
- Water acclimation
- Full gentle submersion
- Assisted (or independent) back float
- Jump in, rollover and float independently
- Independence from parent(s)
- And more!
Once your child has mastered the skills of our beginner-level programs, they can proceed to our advanced water survival and stroke development programs!
