A child learning to swim

The Lake Shore in Chicago is lined with beaches and it’s great to enjoy time in and around the water, but it’s also important to remember that water can be dangerous for those lacking swim skills. Thankfully, learn to swim programs in Chicago can play a vital role in protecting children against drowning!

Did you know? Learning to swim can reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent for 1 to four-year-old’s who take formal swim lessons! For this reason, safety experts encourage everyone to know the basics of swimming. Specialized survival swimming lessons, such as those offered by British Swim School, are a step toward keeping children safe.
