Swimming Lessons for Toddlers in Chicago: Fun, Safe and Effective!

Swimmer and instructor in pool during swimming classes for toddlers in Chicago

Many parents wonder when they should sign up for swimming classes for toddlers in Chicago. Our advice: Begin teaching your toddler water survival and swim readiness skills as early as possible! Toddlers may not be ready to swim independently but they can begin acclimating to the water and learning lifesaving survival skills, such as how to roll over and float on their back. The skills learned in toddler swimming lessons build a strong foundation for future, more advanced lessons and even more importantly, help to prepare children to survive an accidental fall into water. Every second counts in cases of near drowning!
